St. John's River Cruise
Saturday, July 20, St. John's Green Spirits took a guided cruise with St. John's Riverkeeper. We saw dolphins, learned about runoff and algae bloom, and enjoyed each other's company.
Green Spirits Walking Tour of the Cathedral District
The Green Spirits kick-off meeting, included a walking tour of the Cathedral District. Led by Ginny Myrick, CEO of Cathedral District-Jax., Inc., we toured the old Community Connections building (formerly the YWCA) and heard about plans to remodel it for a multi-income housing unit. Then, JoAnnn Tredennick took us to Elena Flats, a historic renovation of a boarding house. When finished, Elena Flats will have four two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom apartments.
