  • Paddle Georgia Spring on the Satilla
    6:00 am-5:00 pm
    Apr-07-18-Apr-08-18

    For a third consecutive year, Georgia River Network and Satilla Riverkeeper are giving river enthusiasts and wanna-be river explorers the opportunity for a spring respite on southeast Georgia’s Satilla River.
    Paddle Georgia Spring on the Satilla, a two-day, 21-mile canoe and kayak adventure on the blackwater river, is set for April 7-8. Online registration is open at http://www.garivers.org/paddle_georgia/springonthesatilla.html
    Spaces are limited to the first 120 registrants. Since registration opened Dec. 28, almost half of those spaces are already filled.
    The event includes on-river camping, two full days of paddling, educational programs, catered breakfasts, lunches and dinners, opportunities to learn chemical water monitoring, games and other activities.
    “This is a great trip for individuals or families that have always dreamed of doing an overnight canoe/kayak trip but weren’t quite sure how to go about it,” said Paddle Georgia Coordinator, Joe Cook. “We’ve taken the guess work out of the logistics of vehicle shuttles, meals and camping, and the flatwater paddling is an easy introduction to canoeing and kayaking for first timers.”
    Organizers say the purpose of the trip is to engage citizens in protecting the Satilla and Georgia’s other rivers while raising money to help protect these waterways. The event will also highlight Satilla Riverkeeper’s efforts to establish a recreational boating trail on the river.
    Registration fees range $115-$230 per person and include all meals for the weekend, tent campsite, shuttles to the river and all education programs.
    For those without their own boats, canoe and kayak rentals will be offered through event sponsor, Southeast Adventure Outfitters in St. Simons.
