Okefenokee-(Not Elements Related)

I live in GA and a place I love to visit is on the verge of being destroyed by a wild fire. The North entrance to Okefenokee Swamp which is a 400,000 acre wildlife reserve is in danger. A raging fire is one mile from the north entrance and destroying everything it gets near. Please say a prayer for the fire fighters and the beautiful wildlife area. Also a small town is in danger also, the fire has already burnt most of the town.



If you look close, you will see a gater about half way from the top, a leaf is pointing to his eye.

I know. I am very worried. It is such a beautiful place. Its like stepping back in time. Keep you fingers crossed they can control the fire.

I love that area and do agree it is a national treasure. I spent a couple days there in 1989 and found it an amazing place. I do hope the fires can be contained or at least minimized.

Oh, Charlotte, that's really bad news. It's not getting any news play up here. I guess Alex Baldwin being a nasty person is more newsworthy. I camped out there over a weekend when I was a Boy Scout -- way, way long ago.

It is a beautiful place. I worked in the Waycross area for 3 years, we have visited The Okefenokee Swamp many times during my childhood it has always amazed me. I was just watching the WTOC News (Savannah) Now it has burned over 45,000 acres there. It is just a terrible thing to witness, I was working only 3 miles away from the swamp when it burned the last time.

It's a tough one. I do hope it gets contained soon!
Winds from it have blown down Fla. way too. We're getting a lot of its

Still not looking good

Still doesn't look too good for the Okefenokee right now but the news said the animals were not in danger yet. Below is a link to a website where they are in need of volunteers and donations if anyone knows of a service or local group that could help. Thanks for all your concern. For those who have visited the park it has a lasting impression.

Requesting food donations for firefighters. Scroll down to end of page for list of things the fire fighters need:
