About Us

The mission of the Florida Springs Institute is to provide a focal point for improving the understanding of springs ecology and to foster the development of science-based education and management actions needed to restore and protect springs throughout Florida.

The Florida Springs Institute is developing a quantitative and scientifically defensible baseline of ecological data that documents existing environmental conditions and trends over time.

The North Florida Springs Environmental Center, located in High Springs, Florida, is the base for the Florida Springs Institute’s education efforts. In addition to the ongoing educational displays, free monthly lectures and other events are held at the center.
