Ocklawahaman Paul Nosca, who strives for accuracy & honesty, worships zealously a more natural Ocklawaha

River Valley that includes the restoration of the 56 river miles from Silver Springs to the St. Johns as a free-flowing stream.

He is a member of NO environmental organization but volunteers his Ocklawaha experience, observations, research,

and sources to groups that share his zeal for this old “crooked river.”  Ocklawahaman has fished, hunted, & explored the

Florida outdoors since 1962.  More of his outdoor time has been spent in the Ocklawaha River Basin than anywhere else.
