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.

Plant Highlight


Commalina erecta

True to its common name, a flower of Commelina erecta lasts only one day, melting away due to enzymes within the plant. Dayflower is a preferred food source of White-tailed Deer and is used as an attractant in food plots on hunting land. Look closely at this picture to see who else may visit this beatuiful summer bloomer in the shallow sandy soils of the granite outcrop.

Now it's your turn! What strange or unique plants can you find and identify while in the Natural District at Stone Mountain Park?
