      The Nature Club Dine and Discover: Paddle Georgia with Joe Cook

      Joe Cook has traveled thousands of miles on Georgia’s rivers and along the way has dug up some interesting, unusual, and unexpected stories about those rivers. Cook believes that if everyone digs around long enough in the rocks, sand, and mud of Georgia’s rivers they will find some personal connection to them. Answers to questions like: What is Malcolm X’s connection to the Flint River? What prompted a crowd of 20,000 to gather on the banks of the Oconee in rural Johnson County in 1939? How in the world did a swarm of American eels shut down a textile plant in northwest Georgia in the late 1880’s? Come and learn the answers to questions like these and how rivers have risen and fallen with cultural changes.
