Craig Pittman's Welcome to Florida: Free the Ocklawaha! 10-9-21 Airs online at RadioStpete.com Saturday 9:15am

Season 5, Episode 2812,  Oct 09, 01:50 PM


Our guest this week is Jennifer Carr, president of Florida Defenders of the Environment, and granddaughter of Marjorie Harris Carr and Archie Carr, two of Florida's greatest conservationists. Marjorie stopped the Cross Florida Barge Canal while Archie was a powerful advocate for sea turtles. Jennifer joins us to discuss the movement to remove the Kirkpatrick Dam and free the Ocklawaha River, an effort her grandmother led for many years. Now is a critical time in this quest as the St. John's River Water Management District which controls the dam has opened a brief public comment period through October 22, where citizens can voice their opinion in support of removing the dam and freeing the river. #florisa #stpetecatalyst #craigpittman #tampabay #radio #floridahistory #radiostpeteĀ
