50th Anniversary Celebrations

Georgia Conservancy Tent Revivals

Darien, Hazlehurst & Hawkinsville

It's time for a good ole fashioned backcountry camp meeting. The Georgia Conservancy and friends celebrated under the big top and on the riverbank with an environmental revival and BBQ. Our three 50th Anniversary Tent Revivals were a chance to renew, reframe and explore what it means to love Georgia's great outdoors in 2017.

Hosted in conjunction with three of our Heartland Rivers of Georgia Paddle Series trips, our "tent revivals" are an invitation to men and women near and far to learn more about the Georgia Conservancy and share their story about being a conservationist. Each "tent revival" will feature delicious pulled pork BBQ (smoked onsite by Grassroots Farms) and curated storytelling about the Altamaha and Ocmulgee Rivers. The first tent revival at our Altamaha River to Sea Paddle will feature a presentation and book-signing by award-winning writer Taylor Brown, author of River of Kings, a historical fiction about the Altamaha River.
