The public is invited to the WWALS Quarterly Board Meeting, where we will discuss the BIG Little River Paddle Race, the numerous other outings and cleanups, the Suwannee Riverkeeper Songwriting Contest, water quality testing, opposition to trash, mines, water withdrawals, coal ash, and pellet plants, promotion of solar power, water trails, and Troupville River Camp and Nature Park, and of course budget and fundraising.
That’s for the entire 10,000 square mile Suwannee River Basin, in Georgia and Florida, including many rivers: four (Alapaha, Withlacoochee, Santa Fe, and Suwannee Rivers), six (plus New and Little Rivers flowing into the Withlacoochee), ten (plus Willacoochee, Alapahoochee, and Little Alapaha Rivers flowing into the Alapaha, and Dead River flowing out of it), thirteen (Black River, Little River, and Gopher River flowing into the Suwannee River), or fifteen (Ichetucknee and New River flowing into the Santa Fe River). Plus many creeks, lakes, ponds, and swamps, such as Grand Bay, Banks Lake and the Okefenokee Swamp.
We will be meeting online by zoom, so you don’t even have to go anywhere.
When: 8-10 AM, Sunday, April 10, 2022
Where: Online: the zoom parameters will follow, as will an agenda.
The board itself does most of its business online via email, but it’s good to have these gatherings once a quarter.
The current board members, officers, and staff are listed on the Board web page.
