Join representatives from the Okefenokee Protection Alliance (OPA) for a free webinar to learn more about the proposal by Twin Pines to mine for titanium on the edge of Georgia's Okefenokee Swamp and how you can help stop this potentially disastrous proposal.

Located in southeast Georgia, the Okefenokee is one of Georgia's seven natural wonders. The largest blackwater wetland in the U.S., the Okefenokee has been designated as a Wetland of International Importance. The Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge is the largest wildlife refuge in the eastern U.S. and is a biological treasure trove for a number of threatened and endangered species.

We'll hear from OPA member organizations, including the Southern Environmental Law Center, The Georgia Conservancy, the Center for Biological Diversity, Georgia Audubon, and The Amphibian Foundation, to learn more about the current mining proposal and the myriad of species that would be negatively impacted by mining so close to this critical wildlife refuge, and to learn how you can take action to stop this mine.
