The tiny owls are always the biggest stars during the annual “ Historic Preservation and State Park Day” in downtown Atlanta. From 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on February 15, anyone at the Sloppy Floyd Building will be able to browse displays from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources (DNR). While the owls and reptiles bring the most oohs and aahs, downtown workers and visitors can also learn about weekend getaways and historic preservation. They can even talk with members of the DNR’s search and rescue team.
Throughout the day, rangers from state parks such as Unicoi and Amicalola Falls will showcase their programs and park amenities. Visitors can learn about the backcountry Hike Inn, SAM Shortline Excursion Train, Brasstown Valley Resort and more. Meeting planners can get details about conference facilities offered at four state parks in Georgia.
The Sloppy Floyd Building is located at 200 Piedmont Avenue in downtown Atlanta, across from the Georgia State Capitol. The Georgia State MARTA Station is located under the office towers. For more information about Georgia’s State Parks, visit GeorgiaStateParks.org or call 1-800-864-7275.
