In 2023, the Georgia State Park rangers are inviting you to “Take Flight” with them. They will be exploring the world of all things that fly. That includes bees, birds, bats and other pollinators. They are offering numerous programs and events at state parks across the state all year long through their Take Flight Series.
What kind of programs does the Take Flight Series offer
From the Georgia State Parks website, here is a list of some of the programs to be offered:
- Bee analysis under microscopes
- Learn backyard birds
- Bird folklore
- Pinecone bird feeders
- Pollinator garden instruction
- Bat programs
- Coastal birding hikes
- Light pollution and birds
- Seasonal bird experiences
Complete the Take Flight Series:
When you visit any Georgia State Park or Historic Site, just pick up a free Take Flight card from the ranger station there. Every time you attend a program that is a part of the Take Flight program, have a ranger initial your card. Once you have attended four Take Flight programs, you will receive a prize. Simply take a photo of your card with the rangers initials and email it to the email provided on the website and your prize will be mailed to you. That’s pretty awesome!
