Daniel Parshley and the Glynn Environmental Coalition (GEC) have been lighting fires under the feet of industries and environmental regulators to clean up pollution and bring change throughout Georgia’s beloved “marshes of Glynn” at the mouth of the Altamaha River.
Forcing Georgia’s Environmental Protection Division to limit air emissions as required by the federal Clean Air Act was just the beginning for Parshley.
Since helping found GEC in 1990, Parshley and GEC volunteers have, among other things, monitored four Superfund sites for more than two decades, created a Safe Seafood Campaign to educate subsistence anglers and most recently helped prevent an elementary school from being built adjacent to a Superfund site.
Georgia Water Coalition’s 2018 Clean 13 report highlights the efforts of individuals, businesses, industries, non-profit organizations and state and local governments who are protecting our water, restoring the health of Georgia’s waterways and preserving them for future generations.
The Coalition is a consortium of more than 250 conservation and environmental organizations, hunting and fishing groups, businesses, and faith-based organizations that have been working to protect Georgia’s water since 2002.
