Coal-fired power plant defeated
Ogeechee Riverkeeper partnered with a number of regional organizations and citizens to push back on a proposed coal-fired power plant in Sandersville, Ga. Last week, its permit expired.
Take pictures on the river, on a walk, gazing at stars, watching for bird, catching a fish, anything you enjoy doing outdoors in our watershed. Tag with #ORKoutside so we can all share and enjoy.
Ogeechee Riverkeeper has launched a YouTube channel. Videos include information about sampling, what a riverkeeper does, baby turtles and the popular "One Quiet Minute" series.
