Join The Georgia Conservancy and our sponsor, the Georgia Canoe Association, on a paddle and camping trip highlighting Middle Georgia's beautiful waterways. (Click here to register).
Featuring sections of the Ocmulgee, Oconee and Altamaha Rivers, the trip will begin on April 20 in Hazlehurst, as we meet at Towns Bluff Park to camp for the night.
The morning of the 21st, we will be shuttled upriver to Lumber City, where we will begin our paddle on the Ocmulgee with experienced guides to lead the way. That night, we will again camp at Towns Bluff Park in Hazlehurst.
The following day (April 22) is Earth Day and will feature a 9-mile paddle to Grey's Landing and a river clean-up in partnership with Rivers Alive.
The Georgia Conservancy has reserved all of Towns Bluff Park for camping the nights of the 20th and 21st, but space is limited, so be sure to register early to guarantee your spot.

The Three Rivers Paddle is one of our four "Heartland Rivers of Georgia" trips featuring camping, paddling and stewardship in south and central Georgia. The series brings to light conservation efforts, economic development and recreation opportunities on the Flint, Ocmulgee, Oconee and Altamaha Rivers.
Largely unknown to the Georgia outdoor enthusiast, the Flint, Ocmulgee, Oconee and Altamaha Rivers are a treasure trove of unparalleled natural beauty and recreation opportunity just a short drive from home.
