New trail adventure guided walks at Fort Pulaski National Monument will start at 10 a.m. Wednesday, March 10, and will be held every Wednesday on a different trail.
Volunteer Linda Kennard and park staffers will conduct walks to observe nature and coastal views of the park. The trails are marked and maps will be provided.
"There’s no better way
to explore the natural beauty of Cockspur Island than to walk, hike or cycle along the paths and trails or kayak the water ways for an amazing outdoor adventure,"
said park superintendent Randy Wester. "Enjoy over 5,000 acres of beautiful natural resources and wilderness."
Anyone can take part in the trail adventures and all participants should wear appropriate clothing and footwear. Binoculars, insect repellent and water are also encouraged.
After the tour, participants can explore other park features including the visitor center, the fort, picnic areas and the park pavilion. Dogs on leashes are welcome and visitors can use cameras.
Fort Pulaski National Monument is on U.S. Highway 80, 15 miles east of Savannah. Admission is $3 per person, and children younger than 15 are free. Other upcoming events:
• Wednesday, April 7 has been designated "Walking Day" by the American Heart Association.
• Join the park’s annual Earth Day walk on Wednesday, April 21.
