2017 SAVE THE DATE - June 2-4

Spring Creek Paddle
Brinson, GA

Join the Georgia Conservancy on our second-annual paddle of Spring Creek in Seminole and Decatur counties. Spring Creek, a natural tributary of the Flint River, meets the Flint and the Chattahoochee River at Lake Seminole in extreme Southwest Georgia.

Our Saturday paddle will begin at US Highway 84 in Brinson, Georgia and conclude at Smith Landing, 7.5 miles downstream. Paddlers will enjoy crisp spring waters, bottomland swamps and blue holes during their time on Spring Creek.

This paddle is in June, so be prepared for many stops to cool off.

Friday night camping and cabin options are available at Seminole State Park.  If you plan to camp, please indicate this during registration.
