Paddle the Upper River

October 7, 2022 | 10:00a-2:00p

St. Marys Shoals Park to St. Marys Cove (Baker County)

This is a 4-6 hour paddle that meanders on the Florida/Georgia link between Baker County, FL and Charlton County, GA. Our launch and take out sites are in Baker County FL. This stretch of river is one of many undeveloped places where you can go 4 miles without seeing a single house. With blue skies, green trees, white sandy shorelines, and the darkest blackwater, you cannot help but be in awe of the beauty of this spectacular place. We will need to set shuttle. There is a $5 park entrance fee at the launch site and a $3 parking at the takeout.

Paddle Egan's Creek

October 11, 2022 | 9:00a-12:00p

Dee Dee Bartels Boat Ramp (Nassau County)

Egan’s Creek in Fernandina Beach, FL, is part of William Bartram’s Trail and runs through the Greenway. The tide is with us for a beautiful tour of this local estuary where there will be opportunities to see all kinds of wildlife, from birds to fish to crustaceans. The beautiful marsh grasslands also allow for an uninterrupted view of the historic Amelia Island Lighthouse. This trip is roundtrip.

Our guest speakers are no longer able to join us for this paddle. We hope to offer this historical journey paddle in the future.
