One hungry bear can ruin a camping trip

DNR asks public help with state parks

Editor, Georgia is blessed with abundant natural beauty and a rich cultural heritage. Many of these amazing landscapes and historic sites are part of our award-winning state parks system, with 63 properties from the mountains to the coast. During the last month, I've seen families hiking the highest waterfall on the East Coast. I've watched children paddle a kayak across a pristine mountain lake. I've helped a retired couple park their RV beside a rolling river. I've seen my son touch his first snake. The list goes on and on.
