Fresh Slices of Old Florida

OLD FLORIDA IS tan bare feet. Turquoise waters. Pink motels. On cool evenings, it’s sweet tea on the porch of a rusty-roofed cabin. The smell of citrus blossoms. Banjos, harmonicas and fiddles. On a lazy Sunday, it’s quiet country roads with tunnel-like canopies of centuries-old live oaks. Mom and Pop gift shops. Roadside produce stands with sweet corn and watermelon. Old Florida is manatees. Crystal clear springs. Rope swings. An aluminum boat. Night crawlers. Mostly, Old Florida is home.

Florida Springs: Paradise Found or Legacy Lost? 

Surrounded by warm seas, Florida is the land of a thousand springs. Our springs are losing their flow. Many springs are choked with algae, their blue waters turning murky and green. We know what the problem is: Groundwater overpumping, pollution, and regulatory neglect, compounded by a lack of political will. Be a voice for our springs.
