Aliens Among Us!
Saturday, August 15, 2009, 9:00 - 12:30 PM
Sweetwater Creek State Park, Lithia Springs, Georgia
They are on the move, slowly swallowing up forests, bottomlands and fields -- engulfing trees, invading your gardens and sucking up sunlight! They are the exotic plants: Kudzu, Privet, and even Wisteria. Join a ranger on this 2-mile guided hike, and get to know the "alien" plants among us. There are small admission and parking fees. Visit the Sweetwater Creek website for more details.
And those are just a few of the events you can find this weekend in Georgia. For more ideas, visit the ExploreGeorgia website operated by our production partners at the Georgia Department of Economic Development.
