Stone Mountain Memorial Association (SMMA), a State authority that is self-supporting and receives no tax dollars, is responsible for Georgia’s Stone Mountain Park. Since 1998, SMMA has managed the park through a long-term public/private partnership with Herschend Family Entertainment Corporation (HFEC), a private corporation that manages all commercial operations in the Park –lodging, attractions, retail and special events. SMMA supervises the lease with HFEC, manages and maintains all the public areas (the Natural District which makes up two-thirds of the Park, roadways, utilities, free picnic areas, etc.), provides public safety, and supports historical and environmental education services at the Confederate Hall Historical and Environmental Education Center.

Winter's Delight
Cranefly Orchid


In the dead of winter, winter is not dead....

As we approach Winter Solstice, the northern hemisphere's shortest day of the year, it is apparent that winter is yet alive. Cranefly Orchid pops through the leaf litter, while native Azaleas develop their buds to prepare for spring bloom. Many birds and mammals can be even more active in their search for food as they burn through more calories to stay warm.

Now it's your turn! What unique native species can you identify while in the Natural District at Stone Mountain Park?
