Join the Florida Museum and University of Florida Thompson Earth Systems Institute for a deep dive into Florida’s springs!
See several short films by documentary filmmaker Eric Flagg, including “Ichetucknee Yesterday,” “Ichetucknee Today and Ichetucknee Tomorrow,” as well as “Enter the Aquifer: Springs Ambassadors Camp.”
The films and discussion will depict and dive into the baseline shift: how we perceive the health of the springs over time. Take part in an engaging discussion and meet local organizations as you learn more about the importance, health and conservation of our state’s water.
