Shelby Miller will go live on the facebook event at 7:15 PM tonight. She’ll be streaming for an hour through sunset at 7:51 PM. She will have to miss moonrise in order to be out well before the 9PM Lanier County curfew.

Bobby McKenzie will be on Banks Lake with Shelby, paddling the raffle kayak, and also taking video for later publication.
WWALS Raffle Kayak, tickets available online.
Whenever the curfews and the like are clear enough, we will resume our series of lunar-monthly WWALS Full Moon Paddles on Banks Lake. Until then, we’ll probably livestream.
Meanwhile, please stay home and help stop the spread of the novel Coronavirus and the COVID-19 disease it causes.
While you’re home, please post your pictures and videos of your outings on lakes, rivers, creeks, swamps, springs, etc.
You can attend some of our virtual events, such as the WWALS livestreams of one or two people at the sites and original dates of the postponed
- April 18th Earth Day Cleanup at Knights Ferry Boat Ramp on the Withlacoochee River and the
- April 25th BIG Little River Paddle Race at Reed Bingham State Park.
You can visit our WWALS festival booth, currently located in the woods, since we are not attending any festivals at least through the end of March.
You can contribute to our Water Quality Testing Program, which is a solitary activity that our volunteers continue. We just ordered another big box of Petrifilms, which costs a heap of money for a tiny nonprofit, so your financial assistance will be appreciated. Here’s a WWALS video playlist of me explaining some recent results.

We are posting a bunch of videos from last year’s Suwannee Riverkeeper Songwriting Contest, in preparation for the Third Annual, which is still on for August 22, 2020. Song is open now!
The WWALS Boomerang Paddle Race, from Georgia to Florida and back again, is still on for Saturday, October 24, 2020. It doesn’t have a shuttle, so even if physical distancing continues that long, we can probably find a way.
