Paddle along Ebenezer Creek in Effingham County, Georgia.

December 1, 2016

On December 3rd, join the The Georgia Conservancy, the City of Springfield, and BackWater Expeditions on a paddle along Ebenezer Creek in Effingham County, Georgia.

When: Saturday, December 3 — 8 AM – 2 PM
Where: New Ebenezer Retreat (2887 Ebenezer Road, Rincon, GA 31326)
Price: $25 – Breakfast & Guided Paddle (does not include boat rental) $20 – Boat Rental

Only an hour’s drive from Savannah, Ebenezer Creek provides several leisurely day trips for paddlers. Ebenezer Creek is also the only coastal stream designated as a “Wild and Scenic River” by the Georgia General Assembly and has been called “Georgia’s best example of a blackwater stream ecosystem”.

Details: Paddlers will meet at 8:00 a.m. at the New Ebenezer Retreat Center for breakfast and a short program on the importance of Ebenezer Creek and the Springfield Ebenezer Creek Greenway Initiative led by the City of Springfield.

At 9:30 a.m., participants will shuttle to Tommy Long Landing to begin a 3-hour paddle towards the Savannah River. Along the way, naturalist guide Cathy Sakas will share her extensive knowledge of the flora and fauna of the cypress-tupelo swamp. Backwater Expeditions guides will outline the history of the area, including the Native American eras and the Salzburgers Landing in 1734.

Plus, visit a historic site along the river known as Ebenezer Crossing and learn its significance from Sonny Emmert of the Georgia DNR Coastal Resources Division.
