Registration

This outing has been canceled due to bad weather. 


This FSI Spring Outing trip we will be led by biologist, Tom Morris, through the Ocala National Forest (ONF) and its springs! We will be visiting Salt Springs and Silver Glen Springs with quick stops along the way to learn about the world's largest contiguous sand pine scrub forest!

Silver Glen Spring and Salt Spring are two premier crystal clear springs that provide great swimming and snorkeling! Expect to see a variety of freshwater and brackish water fish. Learn about the history of Silver Glen Spring and Salt Spring and take a trip to the gorgeous sand boil springs at Silver Glen! We plan to allow enough time for snorkeling and hiking at both locations.

There will be changing rooms and restrooms at both facilities. Be sure to pack swim gear, sunscreen, chairs, water, and lunch. For those who haven't been to ONF, there is little to no cell phone service!
