About this event:

Young Harris College Maxwell Center


The Georgia Canoeing Association is partnering with Save Georgia’s Hemlocks to treat the hemlocks on Georgia DNR land on the Cartecay River.  We need to train at least ten and hopefully 20 people to lead the treatment effort for small groups of three or four that will spread out down the river to administer treatment.  You do not have to be comfortable leading a paddle trip on the Cartecay to be a treatment leader.  We will have experienced paddlers to handle that task.  

Training will take place at Young Harris College on Sunday, February 2, 2020 from 2:00 to 4:00.  We will meet at the Maxwell Center for ground school, then head out on campus to see what an infected hemlock looks like and to practice treating.  See the map of the Maxwell Center posted below.  If you can attend please RSVP on the GCA website.

I look forward to seeing you then and there.
