Join us for our monthly Full Moon paddle and star gazing at Banks Lake. The sun will set at 8:23 p.m. Come early enough to prep your boat so that we are on the lake by 7:30 p.m. We will have plenty of time to enjoy a beautiful sunset, the moon rise and watch the stars come out. Sunsets are usually spectacular. The moon will rise at 8:20 p.m. We will enjoy the view while leisurely paddling through the cypress trees before it gets dark while we look for birds, alligators and bats.

Banks Lake Boat Ramp, 307 Georgia 122, Lakeland, GA 31635, in Lanier County.
Banks Lake Boat Ramp
a light for your boat or some type of light to have on yourself
(glow stick, head lamp, or flashlight), and bring a rope for your
boat. You must wear a Personal Flotation Device (PFD). A whistle is
not required, but it’s a good idea in the dark. Dress for cold
weather, the temperature drops quickly after the sun sets.
Also trash pickers and trash bags: every WWALS outing is also a cleanup.
Mosquitoes can be bad at the boat ramp but are not a problem on the water.
We recommend beautyberry: works just as good as commercial repellant.
Free: This outing is free to WWALS members, and $10 (ten dollars) for non-members.
We recommend you support the work of WWALS by
becoming a WWALS member today!
