Last chance for Oyster Roast tickets

Oysters for the Ogeechee will be Thursday, Nov. 3, at Isle of Hope Marina. We'll have amazing silent auction items to win, delicious food, unlimited beer and wine, and music from DJ Jose Ray. It's our biggest party of the year! There is limited capacity at the venue so get your tickets now and don't miss out. 

Mystery ORCA raffle tickets

If you can't attend the oyster roast, but you still want to join in on the fun, you can purchase chances to win a cooler full of amazing gifts. We'll even give you a sneak peek of a couple of the items in it. Signed books from Janisse Ray, swag from the Savannah Tree Foundation, items from Hunter Cattle and more!

Responsible hunting and fishing

Everyone can be environmental stewards and lead by example with responsible and ethical outdoor practices, especially when it comes to hunting and fishing. Learn more about the best practices and ways to help the watershed while enjoying the outdoors. 

Members-only paddle 

Join ORK and a Moon River Guide for a sunset paddle through the marshes and rivers of the lowcountry estuary. Learn about the coastal ecology and history of this area of Savannah. Stick around for a social hour at the outfitter for snacks and drinks.

Tool Kit for Citizens

Unchecked development is one of the most dangerous threats to water quality. This tool kit is intended as a guide for broad grassroots citizen coalitions to lobby local municipalities and governments to adopt planning and zoning ordinances that address a wide range of concerns.

Rivers Alive

Join the Ogeechee Riverkeeper and Jenkins County Chamber of Commerce for a River’s Alive Community Cleanup in Millen, Georgia, on Saturday, December 3. Volunteers will be assigned cleanup locations either at a river landing or roadway nearby. Pre-registration is required.
