Florida’s artesian (deep groundwater) springs are an important natural resource, providing the basis for extensive wildlife support and human recreation. These springs and the Floridan Aquifer that feeds them are under increasing threats from human activities, including flow reductions, nutrient increases, aquatic weed management activities, recreational impacts, and a variety of water resource development projects. A growing awareness of these problems is leading to a rapid increase in demand for knowledge about the basic chemistry, biology, and ecology of springs to be used for improved resource management. This course provides an overview of the current understanding of how springs are a product of their environmental surroundings and how they respond to management decisions.

This Florida Springs Institute program addresses these issues through a series of lectures and springs visits accompanied by a number of our states leading springs and environmental conservation experts. Springs Field School is a fantastic way to immerse yourself in nature while also learning about Florida springs and how to stop their degradation.

This year's Springs Field School will be held over the course of three days at The Retreat at Silver Springs. Facilities include a lecture hall, dining hall, showers, swimming pool, and all meals covered. Guided field trips will be led to Silver Glen Springs, Rodman Dam/Ocklawaha River, Silver Springs, and Ocala Waste Water Treatment Plant.
