Marsh Memoirs

A Storytelling experience

Get Started

Marsh Memoirs is a multi-media hiking experience that builds storytelling, poetry, and fun into your nature walk. It is an artistic ode to the cultural and natural stories held by our land. The audio performances were written by Georgia authors who were inspired by Newman Wetlands Center. Voice actors performed each piece with skill and passion, bringing the stories to life!

These stories can only be heard here and nowhere else. There is a story for everyone including the story of a water drop’s journey, a historical fiction piece based on local Civil War battles, and conversations between water, trees, and even a grumpy ol’ turtle.
