The Florida Springs Council brings together Policy, Law, and Scientific experts to Advocate for Florida's Springs and Spring-fed Rivers

Our Story

In 2016, springs and environmental organizations from all over the state came together to form a consortium, each contributing their skills and local expertise to coordinate action in the restoration, preservation, and protection of Florida's freshwater springs and the Floridan aquifer. Today, we unite these organizations and a growing number of individual members to lobby in Tallahassee for more protective springs laws, to monitor agency rulemaking,  to bring legal action when necessary, and to mobilize wherever a spring is under threat.
