For more than 14,000 years, Florida natives and newcomers set out on the St. Johns, Silver, and Ocklawaha Rivers in search of connection with nature, healing springs, and adventure. This vast network of waterways and springs linked the state’s wild roots to its growing river communities. The Great Florida Riverway, a 217-mile aquatic wonderland, was Florida’s first tourist attraction — a magnet for travel writers and explorers, as well as a transportation corridor for people and products.
In just over 50 years ago, all of that changed.
Join us for a special online production on December 2nd from 8 to 9 p.m. to learn more about the history, ecology, and economic opportunities surrounding this vital waterway. Together, we can restore the ecological and economic health of three rivers and fifty springs with one solution.
Watch this site for more details.
