Lake Sinclair Paddle Trip – Coal Ash Awareness @ Lake Sinclair, Milledgeville
Mar 17 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Lake Sinclair is one of middle-Georgia’s recreation hot spots.  It’s also home to leaking coal waste ponds from Plant Branch. The waste in the ponds contains toxic metals and chemicals. It can be stored in ponds near coal plants or in your local landfill. Join the Georgia Water Coalition for a presentation and paddle on Lake Sinclair to see how the toxic waste left over from burning coal affects the lake and the Oconee River. Learn more about the dangers of coal ash and how to engage your elected officials in preventing this pollution from entering our waterways. Beginner paddlers welcome.  SouthWings will fly over and take aerial photographs as we paddle out to the Coal Ash Ponds.

2 ticket options:
$5 – Bring your own boat
$10 – Need a boat
32 seats in boats available (mostly kayaks)
