April 7th, 2013, Wekiva River, FL – Building off momentum from the “Speak Up Wekiva” event, held by the Florida Conservation Coalition (FCC) and others in February 2013, IDEAS leaders in Central Florida decided to take the next steps to engage citizens in a community action project called “ACT UP WEKIVA“!
Early Sunday morning, 40+ leaders in Central Florida took #Action to remove trash, litter and aquatic invasive species from the Little Wekiva River on a canoe clean-up expedition, down a natural tributary of the greater Wekiva River.
A special thanks to Deborah Shelly, Mary Sue Weinaug and our friends who joined us from Sierra Club, First Green Bank, FL Dept. of Environmental Protection (DEP), Wekiva Island, Wekiva River Aquatics Preserve, local IDEAS chapters and others in Central Florida! #ActionCFL #TheHiveOrlando
