LIFE - Florida Caverns State Park

Students at Florida Caverns State ParkThe LIFE Florida Caverns State Park (FCSP) Program is a partnership between the Department of Environmental Protection and Dayspring Christian Academy  in Jackson County. The program targets students at Dayspring School and field experiences involve a number of distinct field labs led by DEP staff, volunteers and participating teachers. The field labs address priority topics that have been identified by the participating teachers and will use the unique natural resources and ecosystems available at Florida Caverns State Park to illustrate important concepts and principles in Life and Environmental Science. The field experiences delve into such topics as cave formations and karst features, the slant of the sun’s rays as it relates to the seasons, and distance vs. displacement. The program was initially funded through a Florida Springs Initiative grant.
