Springs Exhibit

Stop by the Rosen campus library to check out our new exhibit, Florida’s Natural Springs! What better way to start the spring semester than by exploring the bubbling, cold spring waters that make Florida’s ecosystem so unique.

The exhibit features items such as photographs, pamphlets, sketches, and newspaper articles that tell a brief history of visitation to various springs in the state, including Silver Springs, Weeki Wachee Springs, De Leon Springs, and many others.

Small, hand-made dioramas of the springs highlight the different items throughout the display. There are also books atop the display case relating to Florida’s springs that are available for check-out.

The exhibit was curated by Emily Horne from Rosen and Burak Ogreten from Special Collections and Archives. It will be on display until the end of the spring semester.
