Welcome to National Park Week 2022! Celebrated annually, this is a week to get outside and explore National Parks both near and far. Here in metro Atlanta, there is the Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area (yours truly), as well as the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area, Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park, and Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historical Park. And that’s not to mention the dozens of state and local parks that are available for exploration, even if they’re not officially affiliated with the National Park Service.
We’ll be posting blogs and other updates throughout the week, so keep checking back to learn more about the life of a park ranger, the area’s history, the best way to hike and conserve the landscape, and much more. You can learn more about National Park Week 2022 here.
