For the past 3 years Georgia River Network has devised a "Challenge of the Year" for Georgians and beyond. This year we challenged Georgians to attend 14 river related events in 2014. We encourage everyone to get out and learn more, advocate for, and enjoy Georgia's rivers! 

CONGRATULATIONS to everyone who completed the 14 in 2014 Challenge! 

Finishers will be recognized at the GRN Party and Fundraiser event: Brews, Boats and BBQ for Better Rivers 2015 at Sweetwater Brewery on February, 8th!
