The headwaters of the Conasauga and Jack’s rivers originate within the Cohutta Wilderness, a federally-protected wilderness area located in the mountains of north Georgia and southeast Tennessee. 作为一个结果, 我们的潜水目的地, located at the edge of the expansive Cohuttas, provides visitors with the chance to experience one of the most biologically-diverse sections of river in North America. The two remote mountain rivers offer wildlife miles of unspoiled sanctuary and are home to over 70 species of fish - twice as many than are found in the entire western United States. Some of these species are found nowhere else on Earth.
Though not attire usually associated with the mountains, participants don a mask and snorkel to catch a glimpse of these colorful, 本地鱼, 大的和小的. Due to continued COVID-19 concerns, guests must provide their own mask and snorkel for this trip.
带来什么: Mask and snorkel (wetsuit not required), 一个泳衣, tennis shoes or wading shoes/strap‐on sandals for time in the water, 一条毛巾, a plastic bag for wet clothes, 换的衣服, 零食, 杀虫剂, 还有很多水.
Participants will meet hg8868皇冠登录 staff in Cisco, Georgia at Cisco Baptist Church on each morning at 9 AM. After a brief logistical discussion, participants will carpool and caravan 从 Cisco Baptist Church to our snorkeling location on the Conasauga River - about a 40 min drive on single-lane and forest service roads.
Join us on a hg8868皇冠登录 Stewardship Trip to learn more about important location-specific conservation issues, as well as statewide advocacy opportunities. Our goal is simple: Create a connection between some of Georgia’s most precious places and the people needed to protect them.
