The Okefenokee Needs Your Help, Comment Period Ends Soon

If you care about the Okefenokee, you can help by commenting on the proposed mine that constitutes a real threat to it.

Comments on the proposed mine can be sent to the Georgia Environmental Protection Division through online forms at the Southern Environmental Law Center or the Nature Conservancy or by emailing the Georgia E.P.D. directly. The comment period ends March 20 at 4:30 p.m. Eastern time.

Here’s a link to an article in the New York Times that explains the issues.

If the link doesn’t work for you – there’s probably a limit to the number of times I can share it – you could try Googling “New York Times The Fate of the Okefenokee is in Your Hands.” The article is by Margaret Renkl.

There’s also a good article in the Bitter Southerner by Janisse Ray, best known for her advocacy of the longleaf pine, that’s well work reading.
