Lisa Rinaman, River UPRising

Lisa Rinaman, the St. Johns Riverkeeper, will be giving a general overview and focus on one of the St. Johns Riverkeeper’s biggest advocacy issues: working to create a more resilient river.

Hurricane Irma was a wake-up call to all of us. It showed us the importance of ensuring we are ready before the next big storm in order to protect our community and the St. Johns River.

St. Johns Riverkeeper would like to share critical information about how we can work together to become more resilient. River UPRising is a custom presentation based on the outcome of the St. Johns Riverkeeper’s River Rising Town Hall Series that stretched over the 2018 Hurricane Season. Working together, we can truly protect our communities and the St. Johns River while improving our quality of life, health and local economy.

“The St. Johns Riverkeeper mission is to be an independent voice that defends, advocates, and activates others to protect and restore the St. Johns River.” To learn more, please see
