SpringsWatch: Wakulla River

SpringsWatch (SW) is a monthly citizen science springs monitoring program that facilitates “hands-on” volunteer work while also contributing to springs research efforts in-house and other environmental agencies around the state. Currently, we have seven SpringsWatch groups: Silver, Ichetucknee, Rainbow, Santa Fe, Weeki Wachee, and Homosassa spring systems. During SpringsWatch sessions, volunteers and FSI staff collect data such as water quality field parameters (temperature, dissolved oxygen, and specific conductance), water surface stage readings, measurement of vertical light attenuation, measurement of horizontal Secchi depth visibility, photo station documentation of aquatic plants and wildlife, and observations of other wildlife and human uses. SpringsWatch is a great way to get out to the springs, learn, and volunteer!

This group is currently accepting volunteers.
