Join us for our monthly Full Moon paddle and star gazing at Banks Lake National Wildlife Refuge. This is a leisurely paddle around the refuge that lies in the Grand Bay–Banks Lake ecosystem, an area that comprises the second-largest freshwater wetland system in Georgia. The sun will set at 8:37 p.m. Come early enough to prep your boat so that we are on the lake by 8:00 p.m. Sunsets are usually spectacular. The moon will rise at 8:41 p.m. and if it isn't cloudy there will be plenty of twilight to get great pictures of the moonrise and sunset.
Remember to BRING A LIGHT for your boat or some type of light to have on yourself (glow stick, head lamp, or flashlight) so other boaters can see you in the dark. You must wear a PFD. A whistle is not required, but it’s a good idea in the dark. Mosquitoes can be bad so come prepared, just in case.
This outing is free to WWALS members, and $10 for non-members. We recommend you support the work of WWALS by becoming a WWALS member today! http://wwals.net/donations/
