October 5

Jekyll Island Day Paddle

Jekyll Island, GA


Join the Georgia Conservancy on October 5 for a Saturday paddle in the tidal creeks, marshes and intracoastal waterway at Jekyll Island!

From the Jekyll Island Authority: "Jekyll Island is a place where nature and humanity peacefully co-exist. The most accessible of Georgia’s protected barrier islands, the majority of Jekyll remains in a natural state and development is tightly limited to preserve the balance. The island is home to more than a thousand acres of mature maritime forest, an icon of the coastal South that has become threatened by over development throughout its range."

Jekyll Island, once known as the "playground of millionaires," is now home to Jekyll Island Club Historic District, Jekyll Island State Park, and other Jekyll Island Authority properties, including the Georgia Sea Turtle Center and Jekyll Island Museum.

Hosted by SouthEast Adventure Outfitters, our Saturday morning paddle will launch from the southwest side of Jekyll Island and track north through the beautiful salt marsh through Fancy Bluff Creek. After rounding the northern tip of the island we will beach our kayaks at the driftwood beach. Kayaks are not included in the cost of registration, but SouthEast Adventure has both kayaks and tandem kayaks for available to rent if you do not have your own boat.

Join us on a Georgia Conservancy Stewardship Trip to learn more about important location-specific conservation issues, as well as statewide advocacy opportunities. Our goal is simple: Create a connection between some of Georgia’s most precious places and the people needed to protect them.
