Georgia is home to two fabulous National Forests – the Chattahoochee and the Oconee. These forests are a veritable playground chock full of gorgeous scenery and fabulous wildlife.
We'll explore the Chattahoochee National Forest by horseback, with a little thanks to Muletop Mountain Outfitters near Blue Ridge, GA. Along the way we'll visit with a couple of people whose job it is to protect and manage the Chattahoochee National Forest.
We'll also take a whirlwind tour of the Oconee National Forest. We'll visit many of the most popular recreation areas of the forest in just one day – this time with a little help from Liz Caldwell, a wildlife biologist with the US Forest Service. In spite of our hurry, we'll also take a quiet moment to locate and spy on the nest of a pair of endangered Red Cockaded Woodpecker. You'll have to watch the program to find out if we're able to spot one of these rare and beautiful birds!
