FLORIDA SPRINGS INSTITUTE
The Howard T. Odum Florida Springs Institute aims to educate the public on our natural water resources any every way we can. One way of doing this is getting outdoors and seeing them first hand! Springs Outings are for all ages groups, whether you're a beginner or a water expert! Each Springs Outing is led by Florida Springs Institute staff and an expert on our regions water resources. These events are perfect for those who wish to explore some of the more hidden springs and rivers of Florida and learn everything about how they work!
