Fort Oglethorpe, GA: Point Park, atop Lookout Mountain, part of Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park, is waiving the entrance fee on Saturday, September 24, 2022, to celebrate National Public Lands Day.  

National Public Lands Day, organized by the National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF), celebrates the connection between people and green space in their community, inspires environmental stewardship, and encourages use of open space for education, recreation, and health benefits.
