Upper Flint River Paddle
Join the Georgia Conservancy for a weekend paddle and riverside campout on the beautiful upper Flint River between the Gerald I. Lawhorn Scout Camp and Sprewell Bluff Park.
Paddlers will join us on Saturday morning at the Gerald I. Lawhorn Boy Scout Camp in Molena, Georgia to begin an overnight journey on one of Georgia’s most strikingly beautiful sections of river. Participants will experience mountainous surroundings on the wide, shoal-laced Flint River as it cuts its way through the Fall Line.
