2019 Rescheduled Upper Flint River Paddle

Description

*This is a rescheduled trip from our 2019 Stewardship Trips season, so there will be very limited space of new registrants. However, our 2020 Upper Flint River Paddle is scheduled for September 26-27 and will open for registration to Georgia Conservancy members on July 15, 2020.

Join the Georgia Conservancy for a weekend paddle and riverside campout on the beautiful upper Flint River between Molena, Georgia and Sprewell Bluff Park.

Paddlers will join us on Saturday morning near Molena, Georgia to begin a two-day paddling journey on one of Georgia’s most strikingly beautiful sections of river. Participants will experience mountainous surroundings on the wide, shoal-laced Flint River as it cuts its way through the Fall Line.

This is a pack-in canoe camping trip, as participants will camp along the river after Saturday’s 8-mile paddle, before returning to the water for roughly 6 miles on Sunday morning. We will exit the river at Upson County’s Sprewell Bluff Park.

Please reach out to Stewardship Trips Director Clark Harrison at charrison@gaconservancy.org for additional details.

In-kind donors and local food producers we will be enjoying during our weekend: Sweetwater Brewing Company (Atlanta), ASW Distillery (Atlanta), and Cafe Campesino Coffee (Americus).

Join us on a Georgia Conservancy Stewardship Trip to learn more about important location-specific conservation issues, as well as statewide advocacy opportunities. Our goal is simple: Create a connection between some of Georgia’s most precious places and the people needed to protect them.
