Whitewater Day on the Chattahoochee in Columbus // August 9
Mark your calendars: August 9th is Georgia Conservancy Whitewater Day! Join the Georgia Conservancy, Whitewater Express, Whitewater Columbus and Uptown Columbus for a whitewater weekend extravaganza that includes a rip-roaring good time down the newly christened Columbus whitewater course and an after-party hosted at The Loft in downtown Columbus.
Georgia Conservancy guests will meet at 3:00 p.m. at the Phenix City, AL offices of Whitewater Express (512 13th Street, Phenix City, AL) and shuttle up river to start our paddle down the longest urban whitewater course in the world!
After the paddle we will change clothes and meet at The Loft for Generation Green’s Save Water, Drink Beer Columbus.
YES: every paddler is invited to The Loft to attend Save Water, Drink Beer – which includes food and two SweetWater beers - as our guest!
Any paddler wearing a Heartland Rivers of Georgia Paddle Series shirt for the Georgia Conservancy gets an extra SweetWater beer.

Whitewater Day on the Chattahoochee in Columbus is one of our twelve 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 recreational opportunities on the Flint, Ocmulgee, Ogeechee, Chattahoochee, Altamaha, Satilla and Savannah rivers.
Largely unknown to the Georgia outdoor enthusiast, Georgia’s heartland rivers are a treasure trove of unparalleled natural beauty and recreation opportunity just a short drive from home.
