Join the Georgia Conservancy for a weekend adventure to one of the most beautiful places in Georgia: the Suwannee River in the Okefenokee Swamp.

Guests will have the opportunity to paddle the mysterious tea-colored water of the Okefenokee with esteemed naturalist, Cathy Sakas. We'll spend the weekend on the west side of the Okefenokee in the Stephen C. Foster State Park and venture out during the day to learn about the natural wonders and fascinating cultural history found in the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge.

In November, migrating sandhill cranes should be arriving and the occasional bald eagle will be heading south to Florida for the winter. Cypress needles will be turning a golden brown and sweetgum should be glowing red before floating to the ground. As we canoe through the Okefenokee, keep a lookout for alligators, deer, white ibis, herons, egrets and maybe even a black bear.
