Help fund the Alliance’s new educational display!


We need to create a display for “Water/Ways,” an upcoming exhibition in High Springs that will be on loan from the Smithsonian Institution. Please watch the video, above; that’s the Alliance’s president, John Jopling, and his grandchildren. We are always thinking about future generations and how we want them to be able to enjoy a healthy Ichetucknee River System!

The Ichetucknee Alliance needs your help. We have an opportunity to develop a public educational display that will be on view this summer (July 16-August 27, 2016) when the High Springs Historical Museum hosts the Smithsonian’s “Water/Ways” exhibition. The Alliance’s display can then travel to other venues—libraries, fairs, schools, community celebrations, etc.—to educate people about how the Ichetucknee has been damaged and what it will take to restore, protect and preserve the river and springs for our children.

We estimate that it will cost $5,000 to develop this display. Costs include fees for a professional graphic artist to design the panels and accompanying information card, development of a script for the panels, printing the information cards and fabrication of the display.

If you love the Ichetucknee and want to do something to help it, here is your chance: Please donate to this project by clicking the “Donate” button on this page. No donation is too small–or too big! When we reach our $5,000 goal, we’ll end this campaign and you will be acknowledged on a special page here on the Alliance’s website.

Thank you for your consideration and for your interest in the Ichetucknee and the work of the Alliance. Please see the bottom of this page for information about the Alliance’s nonprofit status.
