Resource Management Programs of Wekiva River Aquatic Preserve Quick Topics
  • Wekiva Basin Ecosystem Working Group

    Want to know what's happening on the river and around the Wekiva Basin?

    Consider attending the next Wekiva Basin Working Group meeting. The working group serves as a clearinghouse for information. Learn what researchers are doing in the basin; get updates from resource managers and biologists from Wekiva Basin State Parks, Seminole State Forest, Wekiva River Aquatic Preserve, the St. Johns River Water Management District and local parks. For more information and to receive an email notice of the next Working Group meeting, contact Deborah.Shelley@dep.state.fl.us or call (407) 330-6727.
  • Exotic Vegetation Control

    The Wekiva River Aquatic Preserve staff work with other agencies, contractors and volunteers, to remove prolific exotic plants, fallen logs and other hazards to navigation with the Aquatic Preserve. Recently, we completed a long term project with the Florida FWC Invasive Plant Section that reduced nuisance cattails in the Wekiva River from over 20 acres to less than 3 acres. We also conduct annual hydrilla removal efforts from the Wekiwa Spring Run.
  • Advisory Committees

    The Wekiva River Aquatic Preserve staff is involved with many different advisory and stakeholder groups working on various issues that confront the basin. These organizations include:
    • Wekiva Basin Ecosystem Working Group.
    • Friends of the Wekiva.
    • Blue Springs Working Group.
    • Wekiva Parkway Commission.
    • Rotary Club of Seminole County South.
    • Florida DEP Total Maximum Daily Loads Working Group.
