SAVANNAH — Ogeechee Riverkeeper will hold a 7-mile paddle trip Saturday, May 23, from Scarboro Landing to Rocky Ford.
The trip is suitable for beginner to intermediate paddlers. Register at www.ogeecheeriverkeeper.org by 4 p.m. Friday, May 22.
Participants will meet at 9 a.m. and should bring a lunch and snacks, water bottles, sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, water shoes or old sneakers (avoid flip-flops and sandals), and dry bags to store keys and phones.
All members are encouraged to register and take part in this monthly paddle trip at no cost beyond their original membership.
Non-members can also go on the trip by becoming a member on Ogeechee Riverkeeper’s website when registering for a trip.
These trips take place on the fourth Saturday of every month until September and require about three to four hours of paddling plus an hour for lunch and feature a guide who will share knowledge of the locale’s wildlife and nature. There is a small fee for rental boats if paddlers do not have one. Outings may be altered due to weather forecasts and/or water levels.
