Join us for another amazing Star Party at the park. These popular events are sponsored by the Staff and Friends of Cloudland Canyon State Park and conducted by the Barnard Astronomical Society. Come see the wonders of the night sky through our telescopes.
We will also be looking at and identifying the Constellations of Fall. As always, we will also be observing DSOs (Deep Sky Objects) like star clusters, nebulae and other galaxies like our own Milky Way. Meet at the starting point to the Disc Golf Course. Astronomy programs are FREE to all; but there is a park entrance/parking fee of $5 per vehicle.
If the weather is “iffy”, call 941-544-3420 after 6PM that day for an update or check our Facebook Page.
The Friends of Georgia State Parks hosted their 2017 conference at the beautiful Jekyll Island on the Atlantic Coast. More than a dozen Cloudland Canyon park volunteers and friends attended the skill building and learning weekend.
Each year, at the annual conference, the Friends of Georgia State Parks recognize a few select volunteers from across the state that have given of their time and talents to support Georgia state parks. Our very own Marcy and George Williams were one of five couples recognized for their volunteer work. Congratulations to George and Marcy for this wonderful honor.
Our trail crew at work: Gary Holsted, David Bechler, Bruce Antman, Larry Jabolonski, and Felicia Rankin. We have new trail markers and new trail map installed on the Sitton’s Gulch trail. The crew carried the 100+ pound sign to it’s location down the trail to help visitors who might get confused.
