2013 Georgia Chapter Fall Gathering
Camp Wahsega near Dahlonega, GA
October 4-6, 2013

Registration is now open for our 2013 Georgia Chapter Fall Gathering for members, families, and friends. Our bi-annual event returns this year to Camp Wahsega in the beautiful north Georgia mountains near Dahlonega, the weekend of October 4–6, 2013. Join us for workshops, hikes and outings.


Schedule of activities:

On Friday night we’ll start things off with a chili potluck reception and the return of our "Owl Prowl". Saturday’s events will include kid’s activities, workshops, hikes and plenty of time for fellowship and relaxation. Our traditional Saturday evening awards banquet and entertainment will include a keynote speaker from the national club. You may choose another outing or workshop after breakfast on Sunday morning before heading for home. Optional weekend activities include biking, fi shing, and canoeing. Tentative workshops include conservation and political updates, "Energizing Your Group", and "Back-Country Cooking".

We welcome participants of all ages, and are very pleased that twelve Boy’s and Girl’s Club members will join us through the Atlanta Inner City Outings (ICO) program. We are also pleased that several Sierrans from neighboring states are planning to attend.

"Exploring, enjoying, and protecting the planet through conservation and outings" is our theme. Allison Chin, former Board of Directors member and immediate past president of the Sierra Club, will be our keynote speaker on Saturday evening. Describing herself as an "ambassador and spokesperson for the Club" for more than 20 years, Allison is also an experienced ICO leader and conservation leader with special insight to share with us about the state of the Sierra Club. Listen to Allison tell her story at: http://www.sierraclub.org/clubhub/ stories/allison-chin.aspx.
