The EcoSolutions annual picnic will be held at Stone Mountain State Park. Directions are below.
This will be more casual than previously. We are not renting a shelter since no one is willing to sit in it all day. Instead, we will pick one of the other benches or grill areas and put up our UU banner. Everyone is free to come visit, eat their lunch, and go for an exploratory walk or hike. There is no signup.
