LIFE - Fanning Springs State Park

student at Fanning SpringsThe LIFE Fanning Springs State Park Program, started in 2009, is a partnership between the Department of Environmental Protection and Nature Coast Middle School. Approximately 77 sixth-eighth grade students participate in field labs that relate to groundwater, springs, water quality, surface water groundwater interactions, and hydrogeology at the Fanning Springs State Park. Honors Biology and Chemistry students from Chiefland High School acted as student mentors to assist with the facilitation of field labs for middle school students. Initial funding for the program was obtained from the Florida DEP Springs Initiative Program.
