Help Save Georgia’s Okefenokee Swamp

Bird Perching on Branch in Water

As an avid camper and hiker, this is something close to my heart. Georgia has some of the most diverse and beautiful wetlands I have ever seen. Alabama-based mining company Twin Pines is proposing a heavy mineral sand strip mine on the doorstep of the Okefenokee Swamp, one of the largest wetlands in the country and home to both a National Wildlife Refuge and a National Wilderness Area. The proposed mine would destroy hundreds of acres of wetlands adjacent to the Okefenokee and threaten the swamp. This mining operation could cause the water levels in swamp to decrease significantly and threaten the fragile ecological system that keeps the swamp and its inhabitants healthy.

This on going fight to save the Okefenokee needs your support. To learn more about the fight and what needs protecting, click here. To take action by letting Georgia leaders know how you feel, click here.
