ATLANTA (AP) National Park Service officials say more than 7 million people visited Georgia parks in 2013 and had an economic benefit of about $348 million. <br />
A National Park Service report says visitor spending supported nearly 5,100 jobs in Georgia in 2013. <br />
Georgia's national park sites include the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area, the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park and more. <br />
National Park Service officials say visitor numbers are lower than 2012, partially because of the 16-day federal government shutdown in October.
Gainesville officials are considering an inter-governmental agreement with Hall County for a litter trap in Flat Creek, which sits in both the city limits of Gainesville and unincorporated Hall County.
