Florida has one of the largest concentrations of freshwater springs on Earth, with more than 700 springs within its boundaries. Springs provide natural, recreational and economic benefits for Florida’s residents and visitors.
The crystal-clear water from springs supplies the base flow for many rivers and streams and the habitat for wildlife and fish, including manatees, alligators, limpkins, herons and turtles. Springs provide a “window” into the aquifer, allowing for a measure of the health of the Floridan aquifer system.
Join us for this week’s #WaterWednesday where we will be discussing Florida’s springs with regional specialized agent Dr. Andrea Albertin. We will be hosting a webinar live on Facebook and advanced registration is required.
