The Upcountry Oyster Roast, held along the Apalachee River, celebrates our partnerships with landowners statewide who are working with ALT to protect 14,457 acres of forest, farmland, river corridors and wetlands, historic sites, and public recreation areas in 30 counties and 9 of Georgia’s 14 river basins.

Guests will enjoy oysters and clams from Sapelo Sea Farms on the Georgia coast, along with beer, wine, farm-fresh foods and desserts. Fresh air, live music and a short walk to the river add to the rustic charm of this unique event!

Where: The Portico, Good Hope, Georgia

When: 3 – 6 p.m.

All proceeds from the Oyster Roast will support future land conservation efforts.
