Date/time: May 18, 8:30 a.m. – 11 a.m.
The Choctawhatchee Basin Alliance (CBA), in partnership with Northwest Florida State College, announces the spring season of its popular eco-tourism initiative, Eco Adventures of Walton County.
Learn about unique places tucked away along the Choctawhatchee River. Learn about our precious water resources, flood plains, where the river flows, and why it is ever changing. Then we will drive to Morrison Springs. Learn about how many millions of gallons of water Morrison Springs emits 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 is dependent on river conditions.
Moderate exertion level. Travel time approximately 1.5 hours each way.
Space is limited to 7 participants. Minimum of 4 required.
Location: Meet at Northwest Florida State College South College, 109 South Greenway Trail, Santa Rosa Beach. A van will be used to transport individuals along the tour. Fee: $35
