September on the Satilla 2020
Join Georgia River Network and Satilla Riverkeeper for September on the Satilla - the ultimate south Georgia river adventure.
U.S. Center for Disease Control recommended the cancellation of all events that involve 50 or more people. Thus, to do our part in helping alleviate this global healthcare crisis, we have rescheduled the event for Sept. 4-6, Labor Day weekend.
We will gather on the evening of Friday, Sept. 4 and complete our paddle on the afternoon of Sept. 6. While we will miss the wild azalea blooms of the spring, it will be warm enough to enjoy refreshing dips!
For two nights, you’ll tent camp atop Long Bluff at the rustic Satilla Lodge. For two days, you’ll paddle nearly 21 miles of this blackwater gem, where moss-draped cypress and tupelo crowd the banks and where it seems oxbow lakes and sloughs radiate from every bend. Educational programs, catered meals, campfires, and camaraderie round out a weekend of leisurely paddling and first-rate camping.
Cost varies by age: $235 for adults, $185 for children 8-17-years-old, and $120 for children 7 & under. Your Spring on the Satilla registration includes all meals, shuttle services, and campsites as well as a T-shirt, boat decals, maps and river descriptions, a year-long membership to Georgia River Network, entertainment, activities, and educational programs.
We’ll enjoy locally brewed Brackyard Ale provided by the Brackish Beer Company during our Saturday meal and camp. It’ll be the perfect pairing for the low-country boil that evening!
Check-in at Satilla Lodge on Sept. 4: 2-8 p.m./ Sept. 6: 7-8:00 a.m.
