Save the St. Johns

Float Downstream: A Virtual Tour of the River

In the spring of 2016, St. Johns Riverkeeper and a team of river advocates completed the Save the St. Johns Tour, a 13-day journey of the entire 310 miles of our St. Johns River.

The Tour to raised awareness about the urgent threats facing the St. Johns and engaged and activated people and organizations throughout our Watershed to collaborative for the River’s protection.

Take a virtual tour of the St. Johns River and learn more about its history, its natural wonders, and the threats – that are sadly still relevant today and ones we continue to advocate on in defense and protection of our River.
