We will take action to learn about, to protect, and to renew God's earth and all who call it home.

Riverfront Development Tour
The Green Spirits sponsored a water taxi tour of the downtown riverfront. Scenic Jacksonville's Executive Director Nancy Powell and Board President Michael Kirwan were excellent guides. We saw the sites of projects underway and those to come. We also learned how to advocate for a greener and more accessible riverfront.
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, JoAnn 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.
