Lithia Springs GA is the home of the giant Smiling Turtle. It's the only turtle stone effigy of its kind in the world. Standing over 25 feet in height this giant has beaconed health seekers for thousands of years to come drink Lithia Spring Water. This ancient wonder is an ancient American Indian water spirit who The largest and longest creek in Georgia runs through this park, so we have an abundance of natural wildlife, including turtles. The creek's name is Sweet Water, named after a Cherokee Indian chief Sweet Water, who lived at Lithia Springs during the early 1800's. Within the boundaries of Lithia Springs are two tributary creeks that run into the Sweet Water Creek. These creeks and their marsh lands are habitats for many types of turtle species. Sadly, the creeks have toxic pollutants that have a negative impact on the turtle populations. It is one of our immediate missions to create a natural pristine habitat for the turtles so that they may thrive. The cost to do this requires a significant amount of money, time, labor and other resources. We are a small privately owned company that has limited resources and it is our hope that you will help us achieve a pristine environment so that the turtle population will thrive. Every order of Lithia Spring Water will help finance the Lithia Turtle Sanctuary.
Only a few years ago there were many different types of turtle species, but now there are fewer, because of the dumping of pollutants into our creeks. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the State of Georgia laws for the Ecological Restoration of creeks and the natural drainage are simply being ignored by local business and the city who have this legal responsibility. Stated below are some of our immediate goals:
* Find upstream polluters and report them to the EPA. Seek legal actions against them if necessary.
* Clean the creeks of all trash and toxins to allow for natural drainage and pristine water conditions.
*Improve the habitat for the turtles to assure that the natural habitat provides adequate food supplies.

Once upon a time, the Giant Frog Rock was the most famous tourist attraction in Douglas County, GA. Everyone visited the Giant Frog Rock and took photos with it. Sadly, it now lays abandoned in the city of Austell's land, adjacent to Lithia Medicine Spring. About 15 years ago the Department of Transportation (DOT) wanted to dynamite Frog Rock so that they could elevate and widen the road. Single handed, Gleda James (pictured above), fought the DOT and won to preserve this ancient wonder for future generations.
Standing on an ancient American step pyramid 25' above the ground Founder/Explorer Ian Simpson gestures to the ancient Firebird effigy that he and his crew uncovered from the earth. About 10 years ago this ancient wonder was almost destroyed by the city who wanted to dynamite a path through Lithia Medicine Spring to build a sewer line. If it were not for local historian Gleda James the ancient fire bird would have been destroyed. Some say that the ancients carved this firebird out of stone as a marker that points toward gold.
