Volunteers from Augusta University including the Jaguars baseball team pitched in with Savannah Riverkeeper on Saturday, November 4 for their annual Day of Service. They helped clear the canoe and kayak launch at our headquarters in downtown Augusta, laying the path and spreading gravel for a smooth takeout.
The SRK canoe and kayak launch is at 328 Riverfront Drive, Augusta, GA 30901 and will be open to the public for use M-F from 9am-5pm. Come on by to check it out!
From there, it's a short paddle upriver toward 5th Street Marina and the Jessye Norman Amphitheater, or Hammond's Ferry and the imminent Riverside Village and ball park in North Augusta. Just downstream past the 520 bridge you can reach Horse Creek, a popular paddling route (and notorious for gator-spotting).
We also had friends pitching in to make progress on Edisto Riverkeeper's office space! Click here to learn more about the newest Waterkeeper in our region.
And one last thing—"SRK headquarters' canoe and kayak launch" is quite a mouthful. We're seeking a namesake sponsor for this public landing that will be in use for years to come! To find out more about this opportunity and your year-end charitable donation, contact Shawn Risher at 706-826-8991 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
