Okefenokee at the Capitol: A Special Press Event Honoring Those Working to Protect the Okefenokee
Monday, January 29 • 1 PM (EST)
Local residents from Charlton, Glynn, Wayne, and Ware counties will be at the Capitol on Monday, January 29 to present a petition signed by more than 500 residents of southeast Georgia. Signers have expressed their support for the passage of House Bill 71, the Okefenokee Protection Act, and urge state officials to act to restrict future mining along Trail Ridge. Along with some of the 95 co-sponsors of the bill, they will be available at 1 pm on Monday in the South Wing of the Capitol to address the press and answer questions.
All are welcome to join us for this special celebration.
You can also take action on behalf of the Okefenokee by contacting your legislators, encouraging them to sign onto HB 71.
