Eco-Tour | Choctawhatchee River and Morrison Springs
Tour the Choctawhatchee River and Morrison Springs with guide Lori Ceier, May 18 from 8:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m.
Learn about unique places tucked away along the Choctawhatchee River, such as precious water resources, flood plains, where the river flows, and why it is ever changing. Then the group will drive to Morrison Springs to learn about how many millions of gallons of water the springs emit every day, and where the water comes from. We will also discuss the flora and fauna that inhabit the area. We will then take a dip in the cool, clear spring water.
Bring water, a snorkel, waterproof camera, sunscreen, towel, and your swimsuit. Pack a lunch if you wish, as there is a pavilion and restroom facility available at the park. The event and swimming depend on river conditions.
Moderate exertion level. Travel time approximately 1.5 hours each way. Space is limited to 7 participants. Minimum of 4 required. Fee is $35.
Participants should meet at Northwest Florida State College South College. A van will be used to transport individuals along the tour.
