WWALS Mission: WWALS Watershed Coalition (WWALS), established June 2012, is an IRS 501(c)(3) educational nonprofit charity that 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. That’s throughout the entire 10,000 square miles of the Basin and Estuary in Georgia and Florida, from the Okefenokee Swamp to the Gulf of Mexico.
Suwannee Riverkeeper®, since December 2016, is a staff position and a project of WWALS as the member of the WATERKEEPER® Alliance for the Suwannee River Basin. See our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).
