Who Owns Water screens in Gainesville
On Wednesday, February 11, in partnership with the University of North Georgia, CRK will host a special showing of the award-winning documentary film – Who Owns Water. Brothers Michael and David Hanson return to the source of their childhood river and paddle the Chattahoochee, Flint and Apalachicola Rivers to the Gulf of Mexico. They take viewers deep into the Water Wars and they learn that the people who live along these rivers have their own stories to tell. Following the screening, David and Michael Hanson along with Jason Ulseth, Riverkeeper, and Duncan Hughes, Headwaters Outreach Director, will be on hand to discuss the film and answer questions.
Location: University of North Georgia, Gainesville/Oakwood Campus, Continuing Education Bldg. 10 Theater, 3820 Mundy Mill Road, Oakwood GA 30566. Click here for a campus map.
Time: Doors open at 6:30pm with a reception serving Sweetwater beer, showtime at 7pm with Q/A to follow the screening.

Two Day Paddle, Camp & Cleanup March 7-8
Back for the 3rd year, this 13-mile paddle cleanup is an incredible journey in a part of the river not accessible to most people. Join us March 7 and 8 for a 2-Day Paddle/Camp/Cleanup from Georgia Power’s Plant McDonough to the Highway 166 Bridge off Fulton Industrial. Last year, we removed over 2 TONS of trash! This stretch of river is suitable for all skill levels with primitive camping Saturday night. Paddlers are responsible for paddling their own camping gear.
