Five Holes Cleanup and Site Exploration, Suwannee River 2018-02-10

Update 2018-02-10: It’s a Go!.

Join us to clean up and scout a chain of springs and sinks next to the Suwannee River. If it looks good, we may plan a bigger outing later in the year.

No boat required; we’re going by land.

This 5 Holes site exploration is immediately after the Organizing Committee meeting for the Suwannee Riverkeeper Songwriting Contest; you can come to either or both.

When: 3PM, Saturday, February 10, 2018

Where: CR 141 Boat Ramp, aka Florida Campsites Ramp, in Suwannee River State Park.

GPS: 30.414, -83.159167

Free: This outing is free to WWALS members. For non-members, it is $10.00, per decision of the WWALS board at its 14 January 2018 meeting for all WWALS outings scheduled since then. We recommend you support the work of WWALS by becoming a WWALS member today! If you want to pay for membership or the outing at the site, please bring cash.

Event: facebook meetup

Bring: swimming gear (suit, goggles, etc.), and a change of warm clothes. A rope wouldn’t hurt. Trash pickers and trash bags: this is a cleanup. Most of us do not plan to paddle, but if you want to, you can put in at the boat ramp and paddle upstream to 5 Holes; in that case bring the usual personal flotation device, boat paddles, food, drinking water, warm clothes, and first aid kit.

Shuttle: Five Holes is a little bit up SW 46th Avenue, so we will walk up from the boat ramp. We’re meeting at the boat ramp because there’s parking there. 5 Holes is on Suwannee River State Park (SRSP) land, and we do have permission for this outing, thanks to Park Manager Craig Liney.

Shuttle Distance: It’s maybe a couple thousand feet from the boat ramp to 5 Holes.

Shuttle duration: A few minutes.

Paddle Distance: None.

Paddle Duration: None.

Gauge: Nobles Ferry, although most any water level will work for this outing.
