Water is Life: On the Chattahoochee River
June 30, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Water is Life: On the Chattahoochee River with Chattahoochee Riverkeeper and Friends of Lake Eufaula
Join us Tuesday as we talk with Chris Manganiello (Chattahoochee Riverkeeper) and Brad Moore (Friends of Lake Eufaula). Learn more about the Chattahoochee River and the people working to protect this beautiful river which forms the southern half of the Alabama and Georgia border, and has been the subject of decades of water conflict between Alabama, Georgia and Florida. Chris will update us on the “Water Wars” and Brad will tell us more about the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint Stakeholders (ACFS) group, which was formed to find “equitable solutions among stakeholders that balance economic, ecological, and social values” for the ACF basin.
ABOUT THE WATER IS LIFE SERIES
Each Tuesday, starting on Rivers of Alabama Day (April 14), we invite you to join us from noon – 1 pm for this virtual get-together…with a purpose! We will be highlighting the role that water plays in our lives throughout Alabama and we will share how you can participate in the efforts to protect water, even in this new “normal”. You’ll hear from our partners across the state, and leading experts in water protection. We’ll even have a few river history lessons thrown in!
