A Wild & Scenic River Tour
by Nick Hammond on Feb 08, 2023
Florida is home to a diverse assortment of water bodies such as lakes, sloughs, swamps, springs, estuaries and rivers. While they are less common in comparison to other Florida aquatic systems, Florida houses some of the most unique, biodiverse river ecosystems in North America.
Two such rivers, cutting their way through Florida, are the Wekiva and Loxahatchee.
Florida's Wekiva and Loxahatchee rivers are protected under the federal Wild and Scenic Rivers act of 1968. This designation is the strongest form of protection for U.S. lentic (free-flowing) systems.
Today, we're taking you on a tour to explore every step along the flow. From cypress swamps to oceans and everything in between:
Oysters and Mangroves
Through our Buy One, Plant One® initiative we're working to replant and restore mangrove ecosystems not just here in Florida but across the globe. Learn more about our planting efforts as we work to change the world, by heading over to Our Mission page.
