I’ve planned and participated on lots of kayak trips, but none have excited me as much as this one! altamaha regional campground Centuries ago, explorers came to this area, at great peril, to find and explore the riches of our GA coastline.  This area is so special in it’s natural diversity and beauty.  Given the honor to be this year’s GCA River Explorer, I choose to go back to our “roots”.  Let’s see what the original explorers found so wonderful, that they left their families behind in Europe, and took dangerous trips to our shores…

The Altamaha River is the largest river in GA and is formed when the Oconee and the Ocmulgee Rivers merge.  This new GCA canoe and kayak trip is coming together with amazing and exciting plans.  We have found a great campgound Altamaha Regional Campground, a locals “favorite”. 

If you want to paddle and explore GA’s coastal areas, this is your chance, Saturday night, Altamaha Riverkeeper and others will present during dinner. I’ll be there from 3-24 to 4-3.  I plan to explore the GA coast and attend the blessing of the fleet in Darien.

During the week, I want to explore the area, including Cumberland and Sapelo Islands. If you are coming, please email me at mail4marieshort@bellsouth.net and let me know.
