Join Georgia River Network and St. Mary's Riverkeeper on the St. Mary's Water Trail for this special Georgia Gem Event. Participants will enjoy delicious meals, live entertainment and tent camping near the beach under gorgeous live oak and palmetto forest. There will be fascinating presentations about wildlife, local lore, coastal restoration efforts and an opportunity to enjoy and explore Cumberland Island by kayak/foot/bicycle. Nov 30 - 7AM - Dec 2 - 5PM
