About the alliance
The goal of the Silver Springs Alliance is to ensure the protection of a healthy ecosystem at Silver Springs for future generations.
The Silver Springs Alliance recognizes that the groundwater supply of Marion County is finite and vulnerable to overuse and pollution due to human activity. Therefore, it is the goal of the Silver Springs Alliance to ensure the sustainability (quantity and quality) of the Floridan Aquifer System, the primary source of water that nourishes Silver Springs.
To accomplish these goals the Silver Springs Alliance will advocate for actions that provide for the long-term maintenance of a healthy Silver Springs, Silver River, and contributing area of the Floridan aquifer (collectively termed the Silver River System).
To make this happen, we will:
- Be an advocate for the Silver Springs System and the environment and the surface and ground watershed that impact the Springs and/or the River.
- Conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife, and the habitats of the Silver River System.
- Support stewardship of the Silver Springs System.
- Produce and make available by sales, charitable donations, or free distribution, suitable interpretive and educational events and material that increase the understanding of Silver Springs System, its wildlife, and the environment that impacts these areas.
