Event Navigation

santa fe river

Join Alachua Conservation Trust for a guided paddle on the Santa Fe River to ACT’s newest conservation purchase, Santa Fe Springs Preserve. We will paddle up the Santa Fe River towards Olustee Creek and visit the second-magnitude spring, Santa Fe Spring, before returning to the launch location. The scenery on the river is spectacular in the fall and you should see some wildlife. The paddle will be led by local guide and Florida Master Naturalist Lars Andersen of Adventure Outpost.

Special precautions will be implemented for proper social distancing of at least 6 feet on this trip. Face masks will be required to be worn when on land and when near other participants both on land or on the water. Temperature checks will be conducted upon arrival and hand sanitizer will be available.


Bug spray, sunscreen, hat, water, snacks or lunch, and a sense of adventure. Watercraft and life jacket will be provided by Adventure Outpost or you are welcome to bring your own.


Space is limited for this paddle and reservations are required through Eventbrite. There is a registration cost for this paddle:

– If you would like Adventure Outpost to provide a kayak/canoe, registration for this trip is $50.
– If you would like to bring your own boat, registration for this trip is $35.

A percentage of your registration will be donated to ACT to support future conservation.


Please contact Alachua Conservation Trust by phone: (352) 373-1078 or with questions.
