Fundraising for Water Trail signs

Update 2018-04-27: Pictures of Lakeland Boat Ramp signs in the ground. Just the signs, Westbound

Update 2018-03-15: People want to know how much the signs cost:

  • $150 one road sign
  • $300 pair of road signs for a landing or boat ramp
  • $600 one kiosk at the water

Any amount of donation helps put up the road signs that let people know the Alapaha River Water Trail exists and directs them to the landings, as well as the kiosks that inform people about what to expect nearby, so we get more people paddling the Alapaha River who will take care of the river.

The Alapaha River Water Trail (ARWT) is a reality. We are ordering the road signs from the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) and need to pay for them. We have a small amount of money from one donor but need to raise nearly $3,000 for the remaining road signs. You can help!

We can’t put your name on a road sign, but if you donate, your name or your organization’s name and logo can go on a kiosk near the water and in the paper brochures and the online ARWT web pages.

We’re raising another $5,000 for those kiosks.

Previously there was some discussion of using a different name for Hotchkiss Road Landing in the Alapaha River Water Trail, but then nobody would know what we were referring to, since that’s what it’s always been called, down at the end of Hotchkiss Road off of US 84.

For those relatively new to WWALS, WWALS was heavily involved in Continue reading
