Earth day itself is April 22, 2022. WWALS will have several events surrounding that day: two cleanups, a full moon paddle, a paddle race, and a river paddle and cleanup.
Before Earth Day
On Saturday, April 16th, we will be doing two Rivers Alive cleanups. One will be at Pafford’s Landing on the Alapaha River in Lanier County.
The other will be on
Two Mile Branch in Valdosta.
Announcement forthcoming. Update 2022-04-07: Two Mile Branch Rivers Alive Trash Clean Up, Valdosta 2022-04-16 2022-04-16.
That same evening, we will have our Full Pink Moon paddle at Banks Lake, just west of Lakeland, Georgia. We do this every full moon, but this is the first one of Spring 2022.
After Earth Day
Finally, on May 7th, we will be paddling from Langdale Park to Sugar Creek, with lunch at the Salty Snapper, getting trash out of the Withlacoochee.
We will also be having on-land cleanups that same day, in conjunction with the City of Valdosta. We and the City are still working out all the details and sites. Announcement forthcoming.
