“Saving Wakulla Springs” Overland Tour

May 16, 2015

May 16, 2015 – 8am – Noon

Find out on this fascinating guided tour of the Wakulla Spring Basin which examines the sources and traces the water journey to the world famous Wakulla Springs. See the actual sinkholes hidden away in the woods where exploration cave divers enter one of the longest and deepest underwater cave systems in the world! Learn how this incredible connection of caves conducts groundwater through the Floridan Aquifer from Leon County south to Wakulla Spring.

Florida Springs expert, Jim Stevenson will guide you through 9 stops of interest en route to Wakulla Springs including lakes & sinkholes and some areas rarely seen by the public unless on this tour! Experience the scenic Wakulla Spring Basin area set against the backdrop of local vegetation and wildlife.

Your tour begins at the new Cascades Park in Tallahassee and concludes at Wakulla Springs State Park on the observation platform overlooking the main spring. 

Take this incredible journey and learn what YOU can do to help save our precious Wakulla Springs.  You will also help support 2 local non-profit organizations working for the protection of Wakulla Springs as the majority of tour proceeds are donated directly back to the Wakulla Springs Alliance and the Friends of Wakulla Springs State Park.

Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity!  (Our regularly scheduled monthly tours suspend for the summer but are available for groups upon special request.)
