WWALS Watershed Coalition 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.
Paddle downstream on the Alapaha River past the Willacoochee River
and the city of Willacoochee,
among ancient cypress, pines, turtles, fish, and birds.
This is a long one, so come prepared:
water, snacks, and as always personal flotation devices.
It’s also remote and possibly difficult with deadfalls,
so please be able to swim or at least float.
If you need a boat, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

and see the potential for planning and carrying out future teacher-led outdoor classroom activities.
