SAVANNAH, Ga. –Earlier this week at Skidaway Island State Park Governor Sonny Perdue announced the launch of Get Outdoors Georgia, an initiative of the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) that encourages Georgians to get outdoors, get fit and enjoy their state parks.

“I want to encourage all Georgians, especially those with children, to take some time to visit one of our state parks,” said Governor Sonny Perdue. “Our state parks are great places to see some of Georgia’s most beautiful sites while spending quality time with your family and getting some good, healthy exercise.”

Based on findings from a five-year Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP), this initiative targets the development of family-oriented, nature-based, healthy outdoor recreational and environmental education programs throughout the state.
