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.
WWALS is a member of the Florida Springs Council (FSC), which is headquartered at Florida Springs Institute (FSI).
The Florida Springs Institute is hosting its end-of-year benefit at
Silver Springs this year on December 11 from 6-9 p.m.
and we would
like to extend an invitation to all FSC organizations and their
members to join us for this fun-filled event. Our keynote speaker
for the evening is the former SJRWMD and SWFWMD Executive Director
and current author of the blog, SWFWMD Matters
(http://swfwmdmatters.blogspot.com/), Emilio “Sonny”
Vergara. Tickets for the event are $75 and include admission to
Silver Springs State Park and the Silver River Museum, food and
drinks, and an opportunity to meet and hear from well-known springs
advocates. There will also be a silent auction and a raffle for a
Silver River boat tour for 20 people! All proceeds will benefit the
FSI, a nonprofit organization.
Not sure why FSI didn’t put this on their website, but here it is, both PDF and HTML below.
