Join us this summer in our all-abilities, touch-free rock hunt! Going on now!

1. Leave behind for others to find (Please do not move rocks).
2. Take only pictures, leave only memories.

Use the map to find all 12 rocks throughout the City of Athens. Post photos of your rock hunting to the facebook event page now through July 31st (photos may be used for future marketing material and award submissions)!

We can’t wait to see your adventures!
