Walker Rocks with Photo Scavenger Hunt at Lula Lake Land Trust

Lookout Mountain, GA – The thrill of hiking Lula Lake Land Trust reaches a new level as the popular nature preserve with limited public access doubles as the location for a photo scavenger hunt.

The event, which takes place on Saturday, July 13th from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., is the third offering in the Walker Rocks Outdoor Series, which was created by the Walker County Chamber of Commerce to raise local awareness about Walker County’s outdoor destinations.

Visitors will be given two hours to find and photograph specific items while walking Lula Lake’s trails.  Pictures can then be posted on each participant’s Facebook page and tagged to the Walker Rocks Facebook page (@Walker Rocks) for a chance to win a prize.

Scavenger hunters will then get an hour of free time to picnic and explore the falls, the east brow of Lookout Mountain and other scenic locations.

Admission to the scavenger hunt is free, but pre-registration is required at walkerrocks.com due to limited space.  Participants must also be able to walk a minimum of three miles to take part in this event.

The Walker Rocks Outdoor Series moves to LaFayette on August 17th with Dive-in Movie and Such, a mini SUP board and kayak festival at Queen City Lake.  That event concludes with a showing of Jaws on the water.

Walker County Commissioner to hold Facebook Live Session on TSPLOST Monday

LaFayette, GA – Walker County Sole Commissioner Shannon Whitfield will take to Facebook Monday, November 6th, to explain and respond to questions concerning the upcoming Transportation Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (TSPLOST) vote.

Whitfield will hold a “Facebook Live” session at 6:00 p.m. on the Walker County Government’s official Facebook page. Along with explaining the benefits of TSPLOST, Whitfield encourages voters to engage with him and post questions during the broadcast.
The county’s Facebook page is located at facebook.com/WalkerCountyCommissioner and features the county’s seal as its profile picture.
Walker County residents will vote “yes” or “no” on the TSPLOST on Tuesday, November 7th. Polls will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. TSPLOST calls for a 1% sales tax increase with funds earmarked specifically for transportation projects, like road paving. The tax would last five-years and would not take effect until April 1, 2018. It is estimated TSPLOST will generate about $3 million a year for transportation projects in Walker County and its five cities.
