Register today for Flint Riverkeeper’s Fall Float

If you haven’t signed up to join Georgia River Network and Flint Riverkeeper on Columbus Day weekend 2015, Oct. 9-12, to take in the best of the Flint River for 4 days, you should!
We will travel 70 miles on the Flint from Albany to Bainbridge, where we will experience beautiful blue hole springs, lively rapids, rich history, abundant wildlife and more! Fashioned after Paddle Georgia’s annual week-long events, we’ll tent camp at Chehaw Park and on the river two nights at Rocky Bend Flint River Retreat. Also like the annual summer adventure, we’ll enjoy catered meals, educational programs and great camaraderie as we make our way down one of Georgia’s most beautiful rivers during a beautiful time of year. Tent camping only with limited options for indoor camping.
Register by September 25! Visit www.garivers.org/paddle_georgia/fallfloat.html for more information.
