I can't think of a better place to spend summer days than at Lake Anna's State Park. What a wonderful way to discover more about the environment we are lucky enough to enjoy. Perhaps you have children or grandchildren that would benefit from a program like this. Why not encourage them to learn more about the wonders of nature. How great if they share what they learn with you.
