2013 John Muir Outing on 4/6 (Coastal Group)

JMO4.png

Skidaway River Paddle

Our Georgia coasts are an integral part of our state's beauty and healthy environment.  Join the Coast Group for this awesome outing, where their guest speakers, Dr. Clark Alexander, professor at the Skidaway Institute of Oceanography and David Kyler of the Center for a Sustainable Coast, present the impacts that rising a sea level has on our Georgia coastline and how important it is that we act to prevent climate change.  Then we will paddle the Skidaway River.  On this three mile loop takes you south on the Skidaway River from Butterbean Beach and up into a small tidal creek where the low tide reveals large oyster reefs where shorebirds like to feed, continuing past a little marsh hammock and then back out to the river and Pigeon Island to view nesting bald eagles before returning to the start.

"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves."
