Dig Sav Guided Hike at Skidaway Island State Park

Big thanks to everyone who came to today’s guided hike at Skidaway Island State Park. We visited several archaeology sites covering 6,000 years of history! Our next walking tour is October 12 through downtown Savannah. It starts at the Battlefield Park flagpole (next to the railroad musuem). All of the tours start at 4pm and are recommended for kids over 12 and adults.
