All varieties of life depend on the Suwannee

Dorian Atchison | Suwannee River, Florida

There’s nothing that can describe raising children immersed in the natural environment, especially the wild rivers. The Suwannee River in North Florida has more fresh water springs than any other river, providing swimming & diving holes for humans, but also fresh water for manatees to drink as well as all kinds of wildlife. My boys & I loved living along the Suwannee River. Now just miles from where I raised them, and slated to go right through the Suwannee River State Park is the Sabal Pipeline. It is shameful this can be allowed to happen. The Suwannee is an old river, with huge cypress and all varieties of wildlife depend upon it.
