About the Event
Twin Pines Minerals, LLC, (Birmingham, Alabama) wants to mine on the sandy ridge that serves as the eastern edge of the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge. Charles McMillian, Coastal Director of the Georgia Conservancy, will provide details on the mining proposal, and potential impacts to the swamp and the St.Marys river. Since the proposal was released in 2019, more than two dozen organizations have spoken out against the project, including state and federal agencies.
