FREE ENTRANCE DAYS AT FORT PULASKI

FRIDAY, SATURDAY AND SUNDAY AUGUST 26-28


FORT PULASKI WELCOMES YOU TO A FREE ENTRANCE DAY THE WEEKEND OF AUGUST 26 - AUGUST 28.  GET IN FREE AT ALL NATIONAL PARKS NATIONWIDE.

The Park will Celebrate the NPS 100th Anniversary with a series of events in August

The National Park Service invites visitors of all ages to join in the celebration of its 100th birthday throughout the month of August.  With special events across the country, and free admission to all 412 national parks from August 25 through August 28, the NPS is encouraging everyone to #FindYourPark / #EncuentraTuParque for the centennial.

“August – our birthday month – will be a nationwide celebration of national parks, and we’re inviting everyone to the party,” said National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis.  “We like to think that we look pretty good for 100, and with so many events and activities to commemorate this milestone, we hope all Americans will join us to celebrate the breathtaking landscapes and inspiring history in our nation’s parks and public lands.  Whether it is in a distant state or in your own community, there are hundreds of ways and places to find your park!”

 Fort Pulaski Events

From marsh walks, to cannon firings, to a concert featuring the Third Infantry Division Band, Fort Pulaski National Monument will provide countless ways for families, students, and park-lovers of all ages to discover their special park experiences for the centennial. Come celebrate Savannah’s National Park!

Among the special events planned at Fort Pulaski to celebrate the National Park Service’s Centennial:

·         On Sunday, August 21st our yearlong Centennial Series continues with a Wetlands Walk that will take place on 11 a.m.

 ·         On Thursday, August 25th celebrate the National Park Service’s birthday on Founder’s Day with free admission and special programs, children’s activities, cannon firings, and more! The party will feature the sounds of Three Fold Chord, students from the Savannah Arts Academy, and the Geechee Gullah Ring Shouters. The evening will conclude at 6:30 p.m. with a special performance by the Third Infantry Division Band from Fort Stewart. Bring your family, lawn chairs, and picnic (Alcoholic Beverages Prohibited) to help us celebrate with our family. 

·         On Sunday, August 28th Fort Pulaski will close the Centennial birthday week with a special program celebrating the photographic work of George A. Grant, the National Park Service’s first chief photographer, at 2 p.m. in the Visitor Center.


A sampling of additional events is available on the National Park Service website, and many more can be found at FindYourPark.com and EncuentraTuParque.com.

Entrance Fees Waived for the NPS Birthday through the Weekend

Park entrance fees will be waived nationwide from August 25 through August 28 to encourage everyone to celebrate the NPS 100th birthday.  Normally Fort Pulaski National Monument charges an entrance fee of $7 per adult.

To continue the national park adventure beyond these entrance fee free days, the $30 Fort Pulaski Annual Pass allows unlimited entrance to the park and the $80 America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreation Lands Pass allows unlimited entrance to more than 2,000 sites, including all national parks, throughout the year. There are also a variety of free or discounted passes available for senior citizens, current military members, fourth grade students, and disabled citizens.

Find Your Park to Celebrate the Centennial

On August 25, 1916, President Woodrow Wilson signed the act that created the National Park Service “to conserve the scenery and the natural and historic objects and the wild life therein and to provide for the enjoyment of the same in such manner and by such means as will leave them unimpaired for future generations.”

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of that moment and to look ahead to the next 100 years, in early 2015 the National Park Service and the National Park Foundation launched the Find Your Park / Encuentra Tu Parque movement.  Inspiring people from all backgrounds to celebrate and support America’s national parks and community-based programs, #FindYourPark / #EncuentraTuParque invites people to discover and share their own unique connections to our nation's natural landscapes, vibrant culture, and rich history.

Fort Pulaski National Monument is located on U.S. Highway 80, 15 miles east of Savannah. For more information, please visit the park website at www.nps.gov/fopu or call (912) 786-5787. You can also follow the park on Instagram at www.instagram.com/FortPulaskiNPS, on Twitter at www.twitter.com/FortPulaskiNPS, or like the official Fort Pulaski National Monument Facebook page at www.facebook.com/FortPulaskiNPS.

SAVANNAH POWER YOGA HOSTS YOGA RELAY TO SUPPORT FAMILY CAREGIVERS

Friday, August 26, 6 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

Kate Doran, owner of Savannah Power Yoga, will host a Yoga Relay on Friday, August 26 between 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. at the Edel Caregiver Institute, located at 6000 Business Center Dr., off Chatham Parkway in Savannah. 


The Edel Caregiver Institute is a new community resource supporting unpaid family caregivers through providing practical hands-on classes, wellness trainings, referrals to community resources, and education on caring for loved ones with a serious illness or disability. 

The Yoga Relay will be held on the outdoor patio and can be moved inside if necessary. Fresh juices, fun and healthy snacks, raffle prizes, and extra yoga mats will be available. 

Kate explains, "We will do 108 sun salutations together on the terrace. If you want to do them all yoruself, that's great! If you want to create a relay team and take turns, that's great too. Each registrant or each team member makes a $25 donation. As my former mother-in-law's caregiver, I understand first-hand the stress experienced by family caregivers, and am excited to give all proceeds to directly support the Edel Caregiver Institute." 

A caregiver is someone who provides care to another person who is elderly, ill, or disabled. Family caregivers receive little training on how to deliver complicated care. Not surprisingly, research shows that family caregivers are at increased risk for health, emotional, financial, and work-related problems. The Edel Caregiver Institute is available to anyone in our community at no charge as a community service of not-for-profit Hospice Savannah, Inc. More information can be found here or by calling 912.629.1331. 

To pre-register for the Yoga Relay, please click here or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Participants can also register and pay at the event on August 26. Checks for $25 or more should made out to Hospice Savannah Foundation.

Since 2013, thanks to the generosity of sponsors, supporters, and players, donations have helped Cory's family and friends present A.E.D.s to the following locations: Chatham County's Tom Triplett Park, Lake Mayer, Memorial Stadium, Ambuc Park, Jennifer Ross Soccer Complex, and Charlie C. Brooks Park; City of Savannah's Guy Minick and Paulson Complexes, Daffin Park, and L. Scott Stell Park; Garden City's Bazemore Park Baseball Complex; the Habersham School; and Camp Happy Days (for children with cancer). Funds raised have also helped provide four scholarships to Georgia Southern University students. 

The Cory Joseph Wilson Memorial, Inc. is a 501-c-3. Donation, sponsorship, team registration, and other information are available online at www.fireball40.com. Remembering Cory Joseph Wilson - his life is a testament to live, laugh, and love.

Project Funding Available for Innovative, Cultural Arts Programs 

The City of Savannah’s Weave-A-Dream (WAD) Panel has issued a call for proposals for the 2016 Weave-A-Dream Cultural & Arts Projects initiative. 

Applications will be accepted through the calendar year, while funds are available.  Programs are to be completed prior to December 31, 2016. The application must be submitted at least eight weeks prior to the start date of the project; the last date an application can be submitted is October 21, 2016.      

Project funding is available up to $2,000 for specific and innovative arts, cultural, or heritage projects or presentations that have a measurable, quantifiable benefit to Savannah’s diverse populations. The Weave-A-Dream Panel seeks proposals that actively involve youth, seniors, and those who have limited access to arts based programs in Savannah. A priority of the WAD funding program is that organizations reach neighborhood communities, encompassing all city districts.   

To be eligible for consideration, an organization must be a non-profit, 501c3, head-quartered in Savannah’s corporate limits.  Proposed programs must also be produced within the City’s corporate limits.  No individual artist applications will be accepted. Agencies funded by the City of Savannah for 2016 are not eligible to apply.Applications are reviewed by the WAD Panel and funding is awarded by a competitive funding process that considers the project’s artistic merit, quality of design, quality of marketing strategy, and plan for assessing the project’s success.  Successful programs will identify a community need and utilize arts and heritage activities as the primary strategy to fulfill that need.

Applications are available on the Department of Cultural Affairs website, under Funding Programs (www.savannahga.gov\arts).  Applying organizations may request application materials and technical assistance by contacting Rebecca Brown at 912-651-6760 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
