Alapaha River Water Trail At-Water signs ready to plant 2020-12-08

Here are all the at-water signs for the Alapaha River Water Trail, and the top signs for the Withlacoochee and Little River Water Trail. We thank the Georgia Department of Natural Resources (GA-DNR) for the grant that enabled printing these at-water signs. The same grant also funded printing 10,000 copies each of z-fold brochures for each of the two water trails, as well as some road signs we bought from the Georgia Department of Transportation, along with some metal posts for hanging the at-water signs. More later on those other items.

You can help defray the cash match. Also, we will print and sell you a pair of signs if you like.

Who wants to dig some postholes and pour some of the ton of concrete the grant paid for?

The Statenville Boat Ramp sign is one of my favorites. That stretch has waterfalls, rapids, a fallen island, and it crosses the state line.

We haven’t forgotten about Florida; we just can’t pay for Florida signs with a Georgia grant, so those will come later by some other method.

While I supplied all the photographs for that one, thanks to Bret Wagenhorst, Suzy Hall, Gretchen Quarterman, and Bobby McKenzie for photographs used on other signs.

We printed a bunch more of the same ARWT top sign that we had already used at the one already-planted ARWT location: Naylor Boat Ramp.

The Naylor Boat Ramp sign, bottom row, second from the right, is actually a spare printed previously. All the other signs shown are freshly printed.

The WLRWT top sign is new. Unlike the one used on the three previously-planted WLRWT locations, this top sign uses a map from the new WLRWT brochure, as well as some other changes.

We’ll get the remaining WLRWT bottom signs soon from Sessions Sign Company of Valdosta, GA.

In case you were wondering, yes, those are dogs next to the table with the most signs.
