WWALS Watershed Coalition, Inc. (WWALS) is the WATERKEEPER® Alliance Member with the name Suwannee RIVERKEEPER®. When you become a member, you get a bumper sticker that looks exactly like the Suwannee Riverkeeper logo:
You can help WWALS advocate for conservation and stewardship of the entire watersheds of the Withlacoochee, Alapaha, Santa Fe, and Suwannee Rivers and all their tributaries in more than thirty counties in south Georgia and north Florida.
WWALS holds numerous paddle outings and cleanups, and several big events, including two paddle races and a songwriting contest. See Sponsor Events.
WWALS programs and projects include water quality testing, water trails, a Troupville River Camp, and legal action. See Sponsor Programs.
Your membership will help WWALS and help us all with boatable, fishable, swimmable rivers and clean drinking water.
The WWALS board is pursuing these goals:
- Education of general public about conservation and stewardship of WWALS watershed.
- Act as a knowledge resource about physical, biological and natural resources to, and about, our community.
- Engage with local agencies on routine water quality testing.
- Develop and maintain documentation relevant to our watershed.
- Identify and address threats to the WWALS Watershed.
- Engage our community in outdoor activities.
- Raise money to fund organization on an ongoing basis.
As a WWALS member, you can join one of our Committees to help accomplish these goals.
In order to reach these goals your generous contribution will be used for the purchase of equipment, volunteer supplies, and legal fees, as well as assisting in presentations, reports and conferences to the community and training workshops for volunteers.
We are raising funds for our programs, to hire an executive director, and we have legal fees right now related to some of these goals.
WWALS offers a variety of levels suitable for all potential members.
