A Sierra Club Cypress Award was received by Chris and Deanna Mericle, of the Suwannee St. Johns Group for their diligent work to expose the faulty documentation of the Sabal Trail Pipeline LLC. Through their efforts, much information on the dangerous pipeline was brought to the attention of elected officials and the public.
Kathryn Taubert, also of the Suwannee St. Johns Group received a Panther Award for outstanding leadership. Her PowerPoint presentation “Water Works: Stand Up and Act Now” has been used to educate hundreds in North Florida. She also spearheaded a coordinated campaign to oppose the Sabal Trail Pipeline in Marion County.
