ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Registration for the Georgia River Network's Paddle Georgia Fall Float on the Flint opened Friday.
Paddlers will cover 56 miles between Albany and Bainbridge over the course of three days.
The event will raise funds for Georgia River Network and Flint River Keeper river protection projects.
Paddle Georgia Coordinator Joe Cook said 30 people have already registered.
"You get out on the river and you experience that river you were bound to it and it becomes a part of you and those people who experience the Flint fall in love with it and we believe that leads them to take action to protect the river", said Cook.
The trip is open to all ages and skill levels, but there are only 175 spots.
