On Saturday, Sept. 22, join river lovers from across North Georgia and beyond for a paddle trip to celebrate the Etowah River and the Etowah River Water Trail. This 6-mile journey near Euharlee features multiple Native American fish weirs, Island Ford (an extensive island complex) and some of the water trail’s newest public access points. Joining us for the adventure will be Bud and Mary Freeman, biologists with the U.S. Geological Survey and the University of Georgia who will share their knowledge of the Etowah’s fauna. Hint: You might get to see some native fish like the beautiful greenbreast darter.
After our journey, we’ll retire to Frankie Harris Park in Euharlee to enjoy a catered dinner from Johnny Mitchell’s Smokehouse in Cartersville.
One lucky participant will go home with a new kayak (or a $300 credit towards the purchase of a new canoe or kayak) from Cedar Creek Park & Outdoor Center in Cave Spring.
All participants will receive a complimentary copy of the Etowah River User’s Guide. Complimentary boat rentals are also included in the suggested donation of $75 per person or $130 per couple.
