Blue Jay Point County Park

Blue Jay Point is one of a handful of parks operated by Wake County in central North Carolina. I had the privilege to work with Wake County park staff as an intern during my post-graduate degree. As a result, I received one heck of an education about government, park planning and how it all fits together to provide open space and leisure opportunities to a populace. Nearly a decade after my internship with Wake County, I was contacted via comment on my blog by the current park manager at Blue Jay Point County Park about using a photo she saw there. Of course I said yes.

If you are looking to get back to nature in the Raleigh area check out Wake County Parks. Blue Jay Point is a prime destination for Environmental Education and a great place to hike and fish. Check out the brochure for more info and be sure and note the little fisherman on the last page.
