Banks Lake National Wildlife Refuge, just west of Lakeland, Georgia.
Gather 6:15 PM, launch 6:30 PM, end 8:50 PM, Saturday, October 31, 2020
Banks Lake Boat Ramp,
307 Georgia 122, Lakeland, GA 31635, in Lanier County.
Banks Lake Boat Ramp
Bring: the usual personal flotation device, boat, paddles, food, drinking water, warm clothes, and first aid kit.
Also trash pickers and trash bags: every WWALS outing is also a cleanup.
You must have a light for your boat or some type of light to have on yourself (glow sticks work well, or head lamp, flashlight, etc.) so other boaters can see you in the dark. It will be totally dark after sunset. You must wear a PFD. A whistle is not required, but it’s a good idea in the dark. Mosquitoes can be bad at dusk so come prepared.
Kayaks are available to borrow but please let us know at least 2 days prior to the event. Bring your own if you have it.
