SJRWMD launches free, interactive journey of the St. Johns River

Stories, videos and insights available through our StreamLines online magazine

PALATKA — Join the St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD) for a virtual journey along the 310 miles of the St. Johns River and head to places you may never have seen before.

The staff of the District’s online newsmagazine StreamLines have kicked off a multimedia series exploring the sights, sounds and history of the St. Johns River as well the science-based work the District carries out to protect and restore the waterway.

The St. Johns River is a designated American Heritage River and an important water supply source that supports a variety of native and endangered plants and animals as it flows from Indian River County north to Mayport.

With in-depth articles, behind-the-scenes videos, expert analysis and comment, interactive maps, links to related information and images, the series inspires a renewed appreciation for the St. Johns and its irreplaceable role in the daily lives of the District’s residents and wildlife.

The first part of the series, focusing on the District’s historic project with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to restore the river’s headwaters in the southern part of the District, is available here. The StreamLines series will continue through 2021 ending — as the St. Johns River does — at the Atlantic Ocean in Mayport, Fla.

Along with StreamLines, the District produces a weekly newsletter. Sign up here and receive Water News directly to your inbox.
