Yellow River Paddle & Jam
October 7

Join the Georgia Conservancy and the Yellow River Water Trail for a peaceful 7-mile flat-water paddle on the Yellow River as it rambles through Newton County. You will float through quiet wooded areas with sandbars for picnicking and rope swings for playing along the way. We may be joined by some of the locals--watch for blue herons, kingfishers turtles, deer and otters. This lazy section of river is shallow, sandy-bottomed and slow—great for kids, newbies, and anyone who wants to kick back. Music will signal the end of your paddle. As you approach the Porterdale’s Yellow River Park just above the mill dam, take in some tunes by local bands. Yellow River Jam is a 1-day music festival on a riverside stage.

On Saturday, December 2, join the Georgia Conservancy for a day paddle on beautiful Ebenezer Creek. Only an hour's drive from Savannah, Ebenezer Creek provides several leisurely day trips for canoeists. Ebenezer is also the only coastal stream designated as a "Wild and Scenic River" by the Georgia General Assembly and has been called "Georgia's best example of a blackwater stream ecosystem".  The swamps boarding the creek contain excellent examples of water tupelo and virgin bald cypress bottomlands. Many other aquatic plants such as parrot feather, pennywort, carnivorous bladderwort, tiny duckweed, and the floating mosquito fern occur in abundance. The bald cypress and tupelo that line the creek are hosts to  Spanish moss, resurrection fern, the  green fly orchid and the American mistletoe.
