December 1998, Apalachicola Bay & River Watch is “Born.”

Twenty Five Years Ago—On December 7, 1998, Pearl Harbor Day, a group of people gathered in Eastpoint for a community forum. All were concerned about the long-term health of the Apalachicola River and Bay. The meeting members discussed the establishment of the Apalachicola Bay and River Watch, a group that would be dedicated to thwarting ecological threats to the Apalachicola River, its vast floodplain and the Apalachicola Bay, in effort to protect it for generations to come. With 25 people attending and $610 donated, the future Apalachicola Riverkeeper was “born.”

Join us on December 3 for a celebration of 25 years!
