Thanks to Rangers Cole and Owen for an informative tour of Grassy Hole, Mill Pond Spring, and Devils Eye Spring on the Ichetucknee River.
This tour was part of the agenda of Stacie Greco’s Santa Fe River Springs Protection Forum.
Join us to paddle past these springs this Saturday on Iche Nippy Dip Day Swim and Paddle, Ichetucknee River 2024-01-06.
Apparently there was quite a town at Mill Pond Spring, formed around the undershot water wheel of the mill. Hurricanes, economic changes, and wars caused the demise of the town.
Water lettuce, the main topic of the Forum, is cultivated in nurseries at Devils Eye Spring.
