WWALS is an advocacy organization working for watershed conservation of the Willacoochee, Withlacoochee, Alapaha, and Little River Systems watershed in south Georgia and north Florida through awareness, environmental monitoring, and citizen advocacy.

The Okefenokee is outside the usual WWALS area, but WWALS is developing an Alapaha River Water Trail, for which this trip is research. And this trip is on the Suwannee River, upstream of where WWALS’ Alapaha and Withlacoochee Rivers join it.
