Georgia River Network, in partnership with the University of Georgia Press and local watershed groups, is creating a series of recreational guides to Georgia’s rivers authored by Joe Cook. Released in Spring 2021, the Ocmulgee River User’s Guide, which includes guides to the South, Yellow and Alcovy rivers as well, is the newest addition to the series. Cook is currently at work on the next book in the series, the Altamaha River User’s Guide. These guide books facilitate recreational use of our rivers for boating, fishing and other water-based activities, and document the rich cultural and natural history associated with Georgia’s rivers. Each book is printed on waterproof paper and in a 5.5 x 8.5 format that is suitable for taking on the river. Each chapter includes a map of a specific section and a complete guide that will aid users in exploring and learning about the river.
All guide books can be purchased in our online store.
