The 10 a.m.-to-2 p.m. event will be filled with guided hikes, a climbing wall, geocaching clinics, outdoor games and more.
There will be opportunities to browse a farmer’s market, learn about organic gardening and composting, climb a rock walk or a tree, and enjoy a free “picnic in the park” created by celebrity chef Todd English using locally grown produce and herbs.
Families who don’t have pets can even get to take shelter dogs for a walk and return them at the end of it.
And best of all, the entire festivities are free of cost. Georgia State Parks is even waiving the regular $5 parking fee between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Vendors include Wonderland Farms, Farmer D’s Organics, Le Cordon, Portable Rock Climbing, Lifeline Animal Project, Serenity Yoga, UGA Insect Zoo and REI.
