Plains-  The Jimmy Carter National Historic site is kicking off its 20th anniversary. 

All year long, the Historic site in Plains will celebrate with various activities including Mule Days and May Day. A new display has also been added showcasing the 39th President's dedication to the environment. 

"The exhibit just sort of highlights how growing up in the small community of Plains and Archery and growing up on a farm and learning conservation from his dad and of course when he got to be Governor and President, he used those lessons to help shape the state of Georgia and also the United States," said Steve Theus, Park Ranger. 

More than 75 people toured the site Monday to kick off the 20th year, making pine cone bird feeders and receiving pine saplings to plant.
