Healthy Rivers for All Georgians is Our Goal

As the voice of Georgia's rivers, we help everyone enjoy, connect with and advocate for economically vital and clean flowing rivers. Founded in 1998, Georgia River Network works for clean water in partnership with the Georgia Water Coalition . You may also know us as the organizers of Paddle Georgia, a week long river trip on a different Georgia river each June. We also maintain the Georgia Water Trails Website.
