Georgia Wilderness Society Activities By Kathy C. Lynn, MD A Macon, Georgia-based nonprofit organization, the Georgia Wilderness Society (GWS) comprises outdoor enthusiasts who organize recreational activities in many of Georgia’s finest wilderness areas, as well as adventure trips to locations in the southeastern United States. Members volunteer to serve as leaders for trips that include camping, canoeing, hiking and other wilderness activities. The GWS website and newsletters announce upcoming trips and publish a trip report on recent activities. GWS provides members interested in leading an expedition with a Trip Leader’s Planning Guide to assist them with creating a well-organized and fun group activity. The GWS website has links to the Altamaha Riverkeeper, a grassroots organization dedicated to preserving the Altamaha River, and other like-minded nature and exploration organizations. Piedmont hiking, rafting, and bicycling are among the activites the GWS sponsors, always with a view to maintaining the environmental health of Georgia’s wilderness. The GWS welcomes members from other states who want to enjoy Georgia’s outdoor treasures.
