Photographs will be for sale and all proceeds go towards WRFG and Okefenokee protection.
The Okefenokee Swamp is the largest blackwater swamp in North America, and a wetland of international importance, and is being threatened by a proposed titanium mine. Twin Pines Minerals, LLC, an Alabama mining company, has asked federal and state authorities permission to operate a 898-acre heavy mineral sand mine next to the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge. The US Fish and Wildlife Service and respected scientists have warned that the mine could affect the hydrology of the area, causing irreversible damage to the swamp including increased frequency of drought and wildfires.
Viewing is open from 10am to 6pm Monday through Friday. It is recommended that you contact us ahead of time to ensure staff is on site. For more information, you can email email@example.com or call the office at 404-523-3471.
A new episode from our Off-Air Programs is fresh in the archives! Deep Dive with David Daniels is a curation of music you wouldn’t necessarily hear on the on-air programs he hosts on 89.3FM, which include Explorations and Plain Ol Horizons. Deep Dive moves between genres of jazz rock fusion, avant garde jazz, electronica, space rock, virtuoso rock guitar and new age/contemporary instrumentals. Enjoy!
