Attend the Annual Leadership & Grand Marshall Breakfast hosted by the MLK Jr Observance Committee on Saturday, January 13th. Did you know that MLK Jr spent quite a bit of time in Liberty County? One of his favorite getaways during the height of the Civil Rights Movement was right here in Liberty County at Dorchester Academy.  For more info on this & other MLK Jr Day activities locally contact Pastor Alvin Jackson at 912-876-5273.

Visit Dunham Farms on the historic Georgia coast for Camellia Days! Starting on Sunday, January 14th, camellias begin blooming in January with a peak time from February through March. Dunham is the perfect place to see these gorgeous flowers, along with azaleas, wisteria, redbud and dogwoods! The gardens are set among some of the most beautiful Live Oaks along the river and marshes. For more info call 912-880-4500.

Visit the new 3rd ID Museum. Too cold for you out there yet? Stay warm & cozy and peruse the history of the Marne Division! Featuring more than 14,000 square feet of space, exhibits include an interactive gallery featuring the origins of Camp Stewart.

Go see Cay Creek Wetlands Interpretive Center. Newly reopened thanks to Coastal Georgia Wildscapes, it is an excellent example of tidal, freshwater wetlands. With Bay, Cypress & Oaks you would swear some of the trees could talk and tell you the history of the area better than any historian. These and other plants provide habitats for numerous species of animals including birds, mammals, reptiles & amphibians. Open dawn to dusk and located off Charlie Butler Road in Midway, you won’t regret the trip!

Take a walk! With some of the most beautiful moss draped Live Oaks on the Georgia coast, Liberty County is home to numerous tree lined dirt roads that will transport you to the past as you traipse along. One we are fond of is Cay Creek Road!

Of course there is lots more to see & do in Liberty County as we get closer to spring, but this is a great start to help you stay active & learn about this place we call home at the same time! #exploreliberty
