WEEKEND FOR RIVERS 2013

Georgia River Network's Annual Conference and Celebration

We're currently accepting presentation proposals for next year's Weekend for Rivers.  Click here for more information.  Deadline to submit a proposal will be December 17, 2012.

Join Georgia River Network on April 6-7, 2013 for Weekend for Rivers, our annual Conference and River Celebration! The 2-day storytelling, partying and paddling event will be held at the Chattahoochee Nature Center in Roswell, Georgia.

Weekend for Rivers gives us all a chance each year to get together and celebrate Georgia’s unique, beautiful rivers as a community of aficionados and advocates. Saturday, April 6th will be a day of inspiration, education and connections with folks who are as passionate about Georgia’s rivers as you are.  The day will include a series of short presentations and interactive forums that will paint a broad picture of the state of Georgia’s rivers and the people who work every day to protect and honor them, and this year we’re including a track focused on river issues and policies as well. We will be issuing a call for proposals October 31st, so start thinking about something you’d like to share.  We’d love to include you in our presenters at next year’s Weekend for Rivers, so keep in mind that you’ll be able to submit a proposal between October 31 and December 17, 2012.

And to top off a day of inspiring presentations, join us for our annual River Celebration Party—you can come whether or not you can attend the rest of the weekend! That night, there will be an opportunity camp at the Chattahoochee Nature Center, wake up the next morning and paddle stretch of the beautiful Chattahoochee River!  So put Weekend for Rivers on your calendar and look for registration to open mid-January, 2013!
