PG Youth3We at Georgia River Network are grateful for your past support of our Paddle Georgia Youth Program. Your support has helped us build the river stewards of tomorrow and train teachers in water education.

Through scholarships, the Paddle Georgia Youth Program brings a group of 10-12 underserved youth with their chaperones on the journey. Most of these kids have never been on a river or camped PG Youth2in a tent before. The Youth Program introduces them to the importance of river protection but more importantly to the joys of paddling a river. The experience is transformative!

The Paddle Georgia Educators Scholarship Program brings teachers in grades K-12 on the trip and provides environmental education training which includes Georgia Adopt-A-Stream and Project WET curriculum. The goal is for these educators to take their experiences on the river and the curriculum they learned back to PG Youth1their classrooms. This program is impactful way beyond the river we paddle.

Georgia River Network asks you to make a donation today earmarked for both of these scholarship programs by using the enclosed envelope of by making a gift online at www.gariver.org.  Make sure to designate your gift to the PG Youth/Educator Scholarship.

Thank you!

Dana Skelton

Interim Executive Director
