On this day 100 years ago President Woodrow Wilson signed legislation to create the National Park Service, recognizing that a new federal bureau was needed whose sole focus was on preserving the growing number of protected green spaces and national heritage areas.
Join your Georgia Chapter of the Sierra Club as we celebrate the NPS 100-year birthday... and what better way to celebrate than to watch an awesome sunset from the top of Arabia mountain National heritage area?
We will meet in the newer gravel parking lot (look for Sammy in the bright orange shirt!), walk the boardwalk over to south parking lot, and then walk to the top of the Mountain. At the summit, we will eat dinner and tell tales of the National Parks we have visited. We will spend about 45 minutes on top of the mountain, so bring your camera, sketch pad, kite, book or whatever you need to enjoy a relaxing sunset. This will be an easy, casual 3-mile hike/walk. Bring whatever you want to eat and drink. Contact our Outings Chair, Sammy Padgett at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
