Music and advocacy on the banks of the iconic Suwannee River!
WWALS outings, rivers, Valdosta wastewater, agricultural runoff, and the issue half the people wanted to talk about was the Sabal Trail fracked methane pipeline: nobody wants it.
Thanks to Leeann Drabenstott Culbreath for the great picture of WWALS Treasurer Gretchen Quarterman and Ambassador Dave Hetzel, who engages everybody who walks past. Thanks to WWALS member Bret Huntley for camping overnight last night and setting up this morning. Gretchen took the other pictures of Dave and Bret. WWALS president John S. Quarterman took the one of the Shook Twins on the Amphitheater Stage in Spirit of Suwannee Music Park at Suwannee River Roots Revival on the banks of the Suwannee River.
Come on down to these upcoming WWALS events and outings:
- October 27th to ask Valdosta what remains to be done to stop the rest of its wastewater spills and to prevent flooding throughout the Suwannee River Basin.
- November 6th to the Dead River Sink on the Alapaha River: no boat required! But bring sturdy shoes and be ready for bugs.
Watch the WWALS Calendar for more outings and events.
WWALS is the Waterkeeper® Alliance Affiliate for the upper Suwannee River and all its tributaries. Amongst all our other advocacy, we continue to support solar power (vote No on Florida Amendment 1!) and to oppose Spectra Energy’s fracked methane Sabal Trail Transmission pipeline, even more now that Spectra is being bought by Enbridge, one of the pipeline companies behind the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL), and FPL has admitted Florida needs no new electricity until 2025 at the earliest, so why charge FPL’s ratepayers $3 billion for this pipeline boondoggle? Here are things you can do. #NoSabalTrail, #NoDAPL, #WaterIsLife.
