FWC commissioners voice support for stronger protection of Weeki Wachee River

As a bright sun beamed down on the sparkling water, the cool water of Weeki Wachee River looked more than inviting to the tourists and locals who enjoyed it Friday afternoon. Some enjoyed it by plunging in from the seawall at Rogers Park. Others kayaked through the crystal clear water while a manatee grazed on the grass beneath the water’s surface. John Prout took it in from the seat of his bicycle perched atop the seawall.
