Road trip to Cedar Key Saturday 2018-05-05

This Saturday, several WWALS people are heading for Cedar Key to present and ask for questions, suggestions, etc. about:

  • who we are: WWALS Watershed Coalition is Suwannee Riverkeeper
  • what we do (outings, races, water trails, water quality, advocacy, etc.),
  • how that benefits Cedar Key (which is downstream from everything we do),
  • and we’re holding a songwriting contest in Cedar Key on June 23rd.

The main goal is encouraging long-term interactions between Cedar Key and Suwannee Riverkeeper.

The secondary goal is to organize the songwriting contest.

When: All day, Saturday, May 5, 2018
Presentation at 3PM
Or let us know and we’ll come to your office.
