Rivers Against Sabal Trail in Live Oak—with Suwannee RIVERKEEPER



Cindy Noel of OSFR

Suwannee Riverkeeper John Quarterman brought together a great group of people who presented the latest information on Sabal Trail and the struggle to shut it down.  Many speakers were present and the meeting went like clockwork, thanks to the great planning and the stern but gracious watchful eye of Gretchen Quarterman.

The large and congenial audience was very supportive of the presentations, and at the same time grateful for the discipline because many came from long distances, some such as CC Scofield, far south in Martin County.
