— South DeKalb residents can paddle the South River on May 18 and experience the beauty of nature close to home.

The excursion is sponsored by the South River Watershed Alliance and offers nature lovers the opportunity to learn about the waterway’s aquatic birds and other wildlife and its vegetation from a certified naturalist.

Last year more than 135 canoeists and kayakers paddled the South River.

The four-hour, 5.5-mile trip departs Panola Shoals at the intersection of Snapfinger Road (Ga. 155) and Panola Road at 9 a.m.

SRWA Director Jackie Echols said it’s a great way to have fun, meet new people, and make new friends.
