Wahsega Conservation Retreat
Join legions of Sierra Club'ers from Georgia and the Southeast region at the annual Conservation Retreat, August 20 – 22, at Camp Wahsega in the north Georgia mountains.
Activities: You'll have an opportunity to meet in person some of the founders of the Sierra Club, such as John Muir, Joseph LeConte, Sam Booher, Alan Toney, and others.
We'll spend our days swapping ideas on how to save the planet one stream, one neighborhood, one bus route, one Senate seat, one power plant at a time, with some time out for hiking in our beautiful woods, identifying scat and tracks, and eating some great camp meals.
Our evenings will be spent telling stories around the campfire (s'mores anyone?). And by the time we leave on Sunday, we hope that everyone will have earned a "I'm here to save the planet" badge by making a commitment to take an active part in saving our planet.
The Georgia Chapter will not be holding its usual annual fall retreat this year. So if you are looking for a chance to meet with other Georgia members and enjoy a fun weekend, this is it!
Facilities: We’ve pared our expenses down to the minimum to make the weekend affordable for families, students, and the rest of us rocked by the economy. Housing will be in dorms, with some camping available. For those who require more luxury or privacy, motel rooms are available in nearby Dahlonega.
