Chandra Brown, Canoochee Riverkeeper, led a canoe trip down the Canoochee River on Saturday, Nov. 6. Canoe trip participants met at East Georgia College and traveled to the starting point, the Daisy-Nevils Bridge in Evans County, to place the canoes in the Canoochee River. The participants canoed about six miles downstream to Groveland on Highway 280.
“While paddling down the river, paddlers saw a deer swimming across the river, abundant waterfowl and other birds, including herons and ducks. The most magical part of canoeing the Canoochee, particularly this time of year, is the way the light and reflections play off of the river,” said Chandra Brown, trip leader and Canoochee Riverkeeper. “I really enjoy sharing the river’s beauty with other people through canoe trips.” The canoe trip was conducted by Canoochee Riverkeeper through East Georgia College’s Lifelong Learning and Education Department.

Among participants were Jim Siegrist, Judy Glisson, Doug Brown and Regina Brown.
