Even though I have lived in Florida almost my whole life, I’ve never explored it’s unique system of freshwater springs. Florida has the greatest assemblage of artesian springs in the world, with over 1,000 springs documented so far. Springs and spring runs are a unique class of ecosystems that are windows into the aquifer, which is the major source of our drinking water. Betsy and I have traveled to several already and have been amazed by their natural beauty and diversity of wildlife. We hope to visit more soon!
