Join us for a debut film screening in our new location!
The Siren and the Springs
Friday, December 2nd
6:00 – 9:00 pm
The Siren and the Springs is a beautiful new film by Odyssey Earth, which will debut live on YouTube on December 2nd.
From the filmmaker’s website:
“The Siren and the Springs takes audiences into the world of Florida’s incredible artesian springs systems. Over 1,000 springs gush forth their crystal-clear contents, creating magical landscapes and biodiverse habitats unique to the world. The largest concentration of artesian springs can be found here.
The Kern team explores the hydrogeology of our aquifers and springs, diving in…quite literally…to the source of our drinking water. Lush eelgrass beds, diving birds, turtles and of course, the universally loved Florida manatee are all important pieces of the ecological puzzle of Florida’s freshwater springs.”
This film is near and dear to FSI, as the Odyssey Earth team came to film our Silver Springs fish count and kept in touch with us during the filmmaking process. This father and son team are incredible people, with a beautiful mission.
We are hosting this film screening as our first public event in our new location on Main Street in historic downtown High Springs.
The doors will open at 6:00 pm and the film starts at 7:00 pm. We will close the center at 9:00 pm.
Our new address is:
18645 High Springs Main Street High Springs, FL 32643.
We will provide light refreshments and ask for a suggested donation of $10 – $20 to attend.
Thank you for your support. We look forward to seeing you in High Springs!
