WWALS Watershed Coalition, Inc. (WWALS) is the WATERKEEPER® Alliance Member with the name Suwannee RIVERKEEPER®.
You can help WWALS advocate for conservation and stewardship of the entire watersheds of the Withlacoochee, Alapaha, Upper, and Lower Suwannee Rivers and all their tributaries in 29 counties in south Georgia and north Florida.
WWALS advocacy includes re-establishing an Alapaha River Water Trail and a new Withlacoochee and Little River Water Trail, opposing the Sabal Trail pipeline and fracking, supporting solar power, and bird-dogging the Valdosta wastewater situation and the Army Corps of Engineers flooding study of the entire Suwannee River Basin. See also the WWALS Mission.
WWALS does recreation and education, including boat races and leisurely paddles; a high school logo contest, book readings and silent auctions; water quality testing, invasive species spotting, and river park advocacy.
Your membership will help WWALS encourage citizens to become more active in watershed conservation, benefiting our local economy, ecology, and community, including boating, fishing, and hunting. If you like, you can also donate more in time or in money to help us all with boatable, fishable, swimmable rivers and clean drinking water.
See our newsletters, our press releases and news media coverage, and the WWALS blog, facebook page, and YouTube channel. Here’s a video about the Alapaha River Water Trail, a presentation on the first year of WWALS, and a report on accomplishments from the goals of 2014.

We are raising funds to hire an executive director, and we have legal fees right now related to some of these goals.
