New Outdoor Recreation Pass Needed in Some Wildlife Areas | Community Spirit
The Georgia Wildlife Resources Division now requires a recreation pass for Flat Creek PFA in Houston County.
That's according to a Department of Natural Resources news release.
The pass is known as the Georgia Outdoor Recreation Pass (GORP) for visitors ages 16-64.
Exempt from the requirement are individuals who have a valid WMA License, Honorary License, Sportsmen’s License, Lifetime License or Three-Day Hunting and Fishing License.
The GORP requirement began Jan. 1, although communications outreach about the new pass going into effect began in fall 2011. Signs are posted on affected properties and a complete list of sites is online at www.georgiawildlife.com.
For individuals, a GORP costs $3.50 for three days or $19 for a year. For groups of eight or fewer people, the pass is $10 (three days) and $35 (annual). A transaction fee applies ($2.50 online, $3 at retail license agents or $5 by phone).
On sale since Nov. 1, the GORP is available online, by calling 1-800-366-2661 or through retail license agents.
