State parks get a boost

Posted By on Mon, Jan 11, 2010 at 11:02 AM

According to The Charlotte Business Journal, 2009 was a record year for North Carolina's state parks.

Here's what the governor is quoted as saying in the article, which you can read in its entirety here:

“It’s obvious North Carolinians and visitors to our state recognize the tremendous value our state parks offer in terms of affordable family experiences and respite from a difficult economy,” Gov. Bev Perdue says. “Every visitor to the state parks can also take pride in this state’s long history of conservation of its remarkable natural resources.”
