The next forum will be on Thursday 10/22 (agenda attached). We will meet at the High Springs New Century Woman’s Club
at 40 NW 1st Ave, High Springs, FL from 9:00 – 12:00. The focus of the meeting will be on septic systems, with Elke Ursin from the FL Department of Health and Roxanne Groover with the Florida Onsite Wastewater Association as speakers.
Following a long lunch break, join us at Poe Springs from 2:00 -4:00 for a field trip with Pete Butt and Tom Morris from Karst Environmental Services. If interested, meet at the Lodge at Poe Springs at 2:00 prepared to walk in the woods for a couple hours (pants, bug spray, close toed shoes, water, etc.). We will see some of the karst features that Pete shared images of during the July meeting! The field trip is part of a springs tag grant administered through the Wildlife Foundation of Florida.
Santa Fe River Springs Protection Forum- January
It looks like the winter meeting will be at Otter Springs on either 1/21 or 1/28. I am hoping we will tour a dairy facility in the afternoon. I will have more details by the 10/22 meeting!
