Bainbridge-- Governor Perdue will make a visit to Southwest Georgia Thursday.   He'll be at Silver Lake in Decatur County for an important announcement and dedication.

The state purchased thousands of acres of uninhabited land in Decatur county. It will be turned into a wildlife conservation operated by the Department of Natural Resources.   Billy Leverette, Decatur County Road Superintendent says, "This is a great acquisition for Decatur County. It will help boost the economy and it will give people a chance they don't have for a place to go hunt and fish."

Soon the land will be open to the public to hunt, fish, and explore nature trails. The dedication starts tomorrow afternoon at 3:30.
