One of the goals of the Florida Springs Institute is to develop a quantitative and scientifically defensible baseline of ecological data that documents the existing environmental conditions and trends over time of springs and disseminate that information to the public and their leaders. The Florida Springs Institute has developed and released restoration action plans, executive summaries, as well as other reports and publications, that help provide current best available knowledge and information about the ecology and environmental condition of Florida's springs and recommend management actions needed to reverse adverse changes occurring in many springs in the state. These documents can be found below arranged in date order. Click on the images to access the full document.
