Here’s WWALS video of the radio interview this morning on WVGA 105.9 FM. It’s an invitation to tomorrow morning’s events, both at 10AM:
- In Georgia: Little River paddle from GA 122 between Hahira and Barney, about 2 hours. Other upcoming outings are also mentioned.
- Florida Sierra Club hike to where the Sabal Trail fracked methane pipeline wants to drill under the Suwannee River. There is an update on the pipeline situation in the video.
Chris also got me to say a few words about why WWALS formed in the first place, and why you should all join WWALS; it has to do with the 700-year flood in 2009.
Plus some plugs for Valdosta’s wastewater fixes and their recent LiDAR flight.
The one thing I realized on the way out I forgot to mention, the one item that caused me to schedule this interview, was the workshop at VSU February 27th about the Withlacoochee and Little River Water Trail, featuring the visual beauty of all WWALS’ rivers in an art exhibit and silent auction, the geology on display by Dennis Price, and the remains of past people and cultures still visible along the river by Tom Baird.
Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow morning on the Little River, or other WWALS members look forward to seeing you tomorrow morning on the Suwannee River. If not tomorrow, there’s plenty more to do on our beautiful south Georgia and north Florida blackwater rivers!
