Tyson honored by Georgia River Network

Margaret Tyson of Cairo was named volunteer of the year by the Georgia River Network at its 11th annual River Celebration Awards Sept. 19.
Information from Georgia River Network states Tyson “resides in the red hills of Southwest Georgia and although she has a full time job, her dedication and passion for rivers has led her to volunteering her time to protect and bring attention to the Ochlockonee River Watershed. She worked closely with Georgia River Network and American Rivers in several legal challenges against the Grady County Fishing Lake. With her help, we fought to protect Tired Creek and adjacent wetlands from a new unneeded dam and massive artificial lake. Unfortunately, our multiple legal battles did not stop the project from moving forward.
