St. Johns Riverkeeper has announced its 2022 Get Your Feet Wet campaign, an initiative to provide resources and opportunities for the public to learn about and explore the St. Johns River and its watershed.
The campaign is being launched to introduce people to the many beautiful and special places along the St. Johns, foster a deeper appreciation for the river, and demonstrate what will be lost if it isn’t protected.
To encourage the community to get outdoors and explore the river, Riverkeeper is partnering with other nonprofits, agencies and businesses to offer a variety of unique outdoor experiences and opportunities to learn about the St. Johns River.
Offerings include eco-tours, hikes, paddling trips and expert speakers throughout the watershed, from the headwaters at Blue Cypress Lake to the St. Johns River estuary in the Jacksonville area.
“Get Your Feet Wet might be an introduction to the St. Johns River and nature for some, or a familiar experience for others,” said Lisa Rinaman, the St. Johns Riverkeeper. “Either way, we believe that the best way to appreciate something is to get out and experience it. In that spirit, we hope that as people learn more about the St. Johns, her tributaries and the watershed, they will be inspired and motivated to protect our river for generations to come.”
Events hosted throughout the watershed are family friendly.
