WWALS Watershed Coalition advocates for conservation and stewardship of the Withlacoochee, Willacoochee, Alapaha, Little, Santa Fe, and Suwannee River watersheds in south Georgia and north Florida through education, awareness, environmental monitoring, and citizen activities.
Plus Chris Mericle has joined the
WWALS Board, the board now meets quarterly,
and much of the work is done through
but the big addition is a map and access points for the
Alapaha River Water Trail.

WWALS supports the proposed ban on fracking in Florida,
by unanimous vote of the WWALS Executive Committee last night.
For our Floridan Aquifer, our springs, and our rivers that run
into the Suwannee to the sea.
The Sunshine State can do what
WWALS has helped
turn to solar power for new energy.
This ban would also contribute to WWALS long-standing opposition to
the Sabal Trail fracked methane pipeline by opposing the fracking
that drives new pipelines and LNG export.
New York State already banned fracking, as have
the entire countries of
France, Bulgaria, Germany, and Scotland.
Florida can be next.
