The Coastal Southeast Chapter will hold a gathering at the Okefenokee Swamp in Southeastern Georgia, November 11-13. Everyone is invited, so if you want to come down from the north for a last reprieve before the cold, please join us! With average November highs in the low 70s F, average low temperatures around 50F, and low rainfall, this time of year is generally very nice there. The Okefenokee Swamp includes 420,000 acres of State Park and National Wildlife Refuge. It is a spectacularly beautiful and primeval place with abundant paddling opportunities and outstanding wildlife. From Spanish moss-laden cypress trees to alligators, black bear, and a host of wading birds and raptors, this is a great place for paddling and natural photography even throughout the southern winter. Stephen C. Foster State Park has nice cabins and abundant tent camping sites. See their website here: http://gastateparks.org/StephenCFoster More details to come.
