Georgia River Network Presents the 2013 GA River Challenge:


Take 13 People Paddling in 2013 - Share the joy of paddling Georgia’s rivers with friend and family

Georgia River Network is encouraging river lovers to celebrate Georgia’s rivers – from wild places to urban waterways – by taking 13 people paddling in 2013.  Set your New Year’s resolution to get outside, get active and get to know your home state with friends and family who might not otherwise go on their own. Georgia’s rivers offer a variety of experiences including family friendly afternoon paddles, riverside hikes, exciting whitewater and blackwater experiences.

The goal of this year’s ‘Take 13 People Paddling in 2013’ challenge isto promote Georgia’s growing water trail movement and send more people to the Georgia Water Trails Website to identify water trails to paddle, locate outfitters, find organized paddling trips or plan their own trip. You can see the ‘Take 13 People Paddling in 2013’ challengeproject page at https://www.garivers.org/experience-your-river/experience-your-river/150.html.

Send to Georgia River Network, 126 South Milledge Ave. Suite E3, Athens, GA 30605.  GRN will send you a sticker for your boat.  The rivers can be within the same river basin to earn your sticker.  GRN reserves the right to reprint and reuse any documentation submitted.
