Masks will be required to be worn at all times during this event regardless of vaccination status.

At the confluence of Olustee Creek and the Santa Fe River sits the 254 acres, two freshwater springs, and 1.3 river miles of pure Florida that make up Santa Fe Springs Preserve. Tall live oaks, cypress trees, blossoming chickasaw plums and native azaleas dot the river banks and steep bluffs of the preserve. Large alligators, wading birds, turtles, catfish, garfish and other water creatures can be found along and in the river within the vicinity of Santa Fe Springs Preserve. Learn more here.
