Review for Rainbow River Conservation Inc, Dunnellon, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This organization is focused on the Rainbow River fed by the second largest spring in Florida. Members have advocated to acquire undeveloped property along the river to enhance the natural beauty and habitat of the aquatic preserve and river. RRC is active with FDEP and SWFWMD district organizations in advocating for programs the will enhance the river.

Rainbow River Conservation organizes the river clean up in May of each year to sweep the river of trash and keep it looking beautiful. They also have worked with State and County governments to bring physical improvements to improve the water and habitat of the river.

The Wood Duck project has mounted 47 Wood Duck nesting boxes on poles in the river to encourage the nesting of these beautiful ducks on the river. These nest boxes have been over 95 % productive in having nesting pairs and broods of ducks born and enjoying the river.

Every special Florida Natural Resource should have an organization like Rainbow River Conservation that is focused on keeping the resource from being damaged by pollution or over development.
