2014 John Muir Outing: Savannah River Paddle Against Pollution
Savannah National Wildlife Refuge


Savannah River Paddle Against Pollution

Savannah_nwr.jpgWe’ll start our paddle down tidal section of the Savannah River through the scenic and nearly untouched wilderness of the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge, a birder's delight! After a leisurely and beautiful paddle, our group will emerge from the wilderness toward downtown Savannah, Georgia. Over lunch we will hear from experts about the impact of two major projects on the Savannah River; the Deepening at the Port of Savannah and pollution from two local coal fired power plants- Plant Kraft and Plant McIntosh.
