1) See FISH Folk Art.
Saturday Morning, Dowdy Park, Summerville Georgia.
Howard Finster Folk Art Festival. Free. May 5 - 6.
Peruse outsider folk art by the likes of Bebo, Finster, Shaking Ray Levi's and
Seine the parkside creek, and perhaps setup a temporary 10 gallon aquarium for public
2) Dipnet FISH in Paradise.
Take a shuttle ride to Howard Finster's Paradise Garden and dipnet the swampy
3) Eat FISH Tacos.
Celebrate Cinco de Mayo cuisine at a local Mexican restaurant.
4) Visit Big FISH.
Visit ECO, Rome - Floyd County's River Center.
( ECO = Etowah - Coosa - Oostanaula river systems )
45 minutes south to Rome, Georgia.
See large and small fish in native aquariums at the former water treatment plant
turned ECO nature center.
5) Seine FISH.
Siene critters at the Sea Serpent spring fed pond. Private Lake, low head dam and stream.
I plan on driving down Friday, May 4 and re-scout the area. I will also stay
Saturday night and then seine, snorkel and explore the area Sunday as well. There
is a Lake Sturgeon Hatchery nearby, but it will likely be closed on the weekend. I
saw a 2 headed sturgeon there years ago, no kidding!
Yes this is a late announcement! It's a quick idea of 5 tricky alignments and i was trying to get a bit more info and assistance before posting the notice. Bebo will not be there but i am sure various fishy folk art will be. I can't get visitation details as of yet from Eric, the director at ECO. Finally, i am unsure if the Sea Serpent is still at the small lake but that may be a good thing for those so concerned. But if your interested in going...
let me know. I think it could be a fun mini adventure.
