Join the Okefenokee Protection Alliance (OPA) on Wednesday, October 20 from 7 PM - 8 PM for a free virtual screening of the short film, Sacred Waters: The Okefenokee in Peril.
"Sacred Waters", presented by OPA with the generous support of the National Parks Conservation Association, takes viewers into the heart of the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge, showcasing its mystical natural beauty, cultural importance, and incredible ecological value. But, as the title of the film sets forth, the sacred waters of the Okefenokee are in peril. The threat of a proposed mineral mine near the edge of the Okefenokee looms large, putting the natural integrity of the Swamp at risk. As "Sacred Waters" brings us deeper into the Okefenokee, we understand how great this threat truly is.
Register today to virtually view the premiere of Sacred Waters and listen to Okefenokee advocates discuss the state of the Swamp and mining proposal.
