Profile Information

Share your most interesting memory of the Flint River
When I was young, about 12, Dad threw me in and had me swim across and back. I cannot remember whether I had a life vest on or not. I can remember being afraid to stay long on the other side because of snakes. He said "you can't live in South Georgia if you haven't swum across the Flint." I do think I wore a life vest because I also remember him telling me how many people have died in the river!

When I swam back across, I was very far downstream. I wonder if the pollution has made it unsafe to swim in the river now!
What is your role in this project?
