Register for Spring on the Satilla!

February 20, 2017
Have YOU registered for Paddle Georgia’s Spring on the Satilla?

Take a voyage down the Satilla River with Georgia River Network April 1st-2nd,2017!

When you think Deep South rivers, the Satilla is likely the image your mind conjures. Its slow-moving blackwater, moss-draped cypress and tupelo forests, rustic riverside fish camps, meandering oxbows and swampy sloughs are the stuff of southern folklore.

As the crow flies, the 28-mile run of the Satilla explored during Spring on the Satilla is just 20 miles from the heart of the Okefenokee Swamp, and like the swamp, it is wild, remote and beautiful.
