February 10, 2015

Join us for PADDLE GEORGIA, the country’s largest week-long canoe/kayak camping adventure down south Georgia’s majestic Ogeechee River this summer (June 20-26) with more than 400 paddlers ranging in age from 4 to 84. REGISTRATION OPENS Feb 10 & Feb 19!

Georgia River Network’s Paddle Georgia 2015 is an environmental education adventure for the whole family and will celebrate its 11th year.

“The purpose of the event is to encourage people to protect our river, raise funds to help protect these rivers and promote recreational use of our rivers,” said Paddle Georgia Coordinator Joe Cook.

During Paddle Georgia’s first ten years, GRN has introduced more than 3,200 paddlers to more than 1000 miles of water trails on 11 different rivers. Along the way the event has generated more than $220,000 for river protection.

Two registration periods will be offered to fill the spaces on the trip: one opening Feb. 10 and a second opening Feb. 19.

“In previous years the event has sold out in less than 24 hours,” said Glenn Dowling, Executive Director of GRN. “The response has been overwhelming so this year we are offering two chances for participants to secure a spot.”

Registration fees are $425 for adults, $230 for children 8-17 and $30 for children 7 and under. A very limited number of spaces are available for “Paddle Georgia Lite,” an abbreviated version of the trip that includes just the first two days. Registration fees for Paddle Georgia Lite are $120, $70 and $15.
