      Saturday was the first day of Paddle Georgia.

      The event is a seven-day adventure where more than 350 people will travel106 miles camping, canoeing, and learning about the river.

      Gina Rogers, with Georgia Wildlife Federation, says this is an important lesson because "rivers belong to the public, water is part of the public trust and it belongs to the people, and it's critical that we have healthy water."

      This is the ninth year for Paddle Georgia and sold out in twenty-four hours.
