Park leaders said it’s a good way to introduce the parks to friends and family who may be new to the state.

“This is a great opportunity for individuals to branch out and find state parks that maybe they haven’t explored or haven’t been to yet,” said Lance Kelly, park manager for Wakulla Springs State Park.
