The Okefenokee Swamp, “The Trembling Earth,” is a place unlike any other in the world. It’s the largest intact blackwater wetland in North America and a mecca for research scientists from around the world. It’s also in the heart of an economically depressed region and under pressure from extractive industries. How can the Okefenokee be conserved for future generations – and what lessons can we learn to keep from repeating our past mistakes?
“Okefenokee Destiny,” a 14-minute PBS EcoSense for Living documentary, addresses these questions as it takes viewers on a journey through the swamp and introduces them to Okefenokee experts. Beginning in August, Georgia River Network will present the short film at locations across Georgia to help spread the movement to conserve the Okefenokee and protect it from mining.
This showing is open to the public and is in partnership with the Lower Muskogee Creek Tribe Harvest Busk. Click here to view the full tour schedule.
