Ogeechee Riverkeeper will lead a special supermoon paddle trip on Sunday. Participants will meet at the Savannah-Ogeechee Canal, 681 Fort Argyle Road in Savannah, at 3 p.m. and launch at 3:30 p.m.
The two-hour paddle will end at Kings Ferry, near Love’s Seafood and Steaks. Participants can join the group for a dinner at Love’s to watch the moon rise, which will happen at 5:48 p.m.
Luke Roberson, Ogeechee Riverkeeper’s outreach and water quality specialist, will lead this trip. Participants should bring snacks, water bottles, sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, water shoes or tennis shoes (flip-flops and sandals are not recommended) a dry bag or way to store personal items and headlamps since the paddle will conclude at sunset.
"This is a great opportunity for paddlers of any level to have a cool afternoon on the water followed by a terrific view of the sunset and a supermoon rising over the river," Roberson said.
ORK has offered guided paddle trips for the past three years.
Paddlers will need to pay $6 to put in at the canal. Registration for non-members for this paddle costs $35 per person while ORK are not charged. Memberships begin at the individual level of $35.
