WWALS Watershed Coalition advocates for conservation and stewardship of the Withlacoochee, Willacoochee, Alapaha, Little, and Suwannee River watersheds in south Georgia and north Florida through education, awareness, environmental monitoring, and citizen activities.

“official” event is off because of the weather. However, if you
want to see the location, gather at Gary Rampley’s, past Mullins
Lane at 6974 Old State Road and park in his yard and then walk to
the River (less than .2 miles) at 1:00. Meet others who like a
cold, rainy outing.
Or, at 2:00pm meet at Let’s Eat Cafe (Exit 18 from I75—across
from Austin’s Steak House at the Shell Station) to discuss
strategies for keeping access to the Alapaha River in Lowndes
Our local hosts still want to meet up with interested folks and for
those not up to braving the weather, we will be indoors at Let’s Eat
(an excellent local place to meet and eat).
