Georgia Outdoors: Healthy Outdoors

On GPB Knowledge
Saturday, December 6, 9 PM

From hiking and biking to canoeing and swimming, there are many ways to get your exercise outside. Research suggests that even low impact activity in the outdoors stimulates endorphins and contributes to both mental and physical health.

Across Georgia, there are thousands of acres of land open for you to explore. Georgia’s state parks, national forests, wildlife refuges, lakes, and other public lands are great places for wildlife viewing, hiking, hunting, fishing, and general outdoor enjoyment.

In this episode we'll experience The Tri-the-Parks Triathalon Series, the Georgia State Parks' Canyon Climbers Challenge and attend Unicoi's State Park's annual Outdoor Activity Day looking for other unique outdoors adventures.
