Sustaining the Suwannee

An expedition down Florida’s wild blackwater river.

The Suwannee River stretches 246 miles over sandy banks and limestone bluffs from southeastern Georgia all the way to the Gulf of Mexico.

Each area of the Suwannee has its own significance. The upper Suwannee area is a unique geological and historical waterway. The middle Suwannee area is an example of how humans have altered and impacted the natural water system. The lower Suwannee area shows how changing conditions upriver combined with global climate change is influencing coastal ecosystems.
