Action Alerts
The Sierra Club Coastal Group meeting will be on Thursday, September 21 at 7:30 pm, at the First Presbyterian Church, 520 Washington Avenue. The speaker will be John Ryon, Site Director of the LeConte Woodmanston Plantation. He will speak on the history and future plans for the historic plantation. Stafford Memorial Fund To Benefit Local Wildlife Refuge Ogeechee Audubon is accepting donations in memory of John R. H. Stafford, who passed away on May 6. John was an environmental activist with a particular fondness for Savannah National Wildlife Refuge, where he worked as a volunteer for many years. All funds donated in his memory will therefore be earmarked for use toward the cost of an exhibit at the soon-to-be-built Visitor Center at this refuge. We also hope to commemorate these contributions with a handsome plaque bearing John's name and mounted next to the exhibit. Please make your check payable to Ogeechee Audubon, write "Stafford Memorial" on the memo line, and mail it to Ogeechee Audubon, P.O. Box 13424, Savannah GA 31416.
Ogeechee Audubon Society Field Trip to Tybee Island North Beach Saturday, July 9, 5:00 PM to 7:30PM Diana Churchill will lead the group on a quest for gulls, terns, skimmers and breeding songbirds. Meet opposite the Recycling Center on Polk St., Tybee Island, at 5:00 PM. Free and open to the public. Bring snacks, water, and bug and sun protection. For more information, please call 912-786-5703.

The land currently is used by Georgia's Department of Transportation to dispose of dredge spoils from the maintenance of the Savannah River navigation channel...

Mulberry Grove Plantation
[Posted Dec 2] There are times in environmental advocacy when a change in direction is necessary. Such is the case with Coastal Group's efforts to promote a full-scale landswap to protect the environmentally sensitive and culturally significant lands of Mulberry Grove Plantation and neighboring historic plantation properties. Due to competing demands and limited funds, a dollar-for-dollar landswap between US Fish and Wildlife Service and Mulberry Grove's owner Georgia Ports Authority no longer seems possible...

Savannah River Deepening
[Posted Dec 2] In August of this year, EPA published its Draft Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) for Dissolved Oxygen (DO) in Savannah Harbor which spans from Fort Pulaski (River Mile 0) to the Seaboard Coastline Railway Bridge (River Mile 27.4).
