Save Crystal River 

FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS

We are committed to restore and protect the beauty and health

of Crystal River and Florida’s waterways for future generations. 
JOIN IN THE MISSION

We successfully achieved our initial goal to restore 92 acres in Phases 1-4 of Kings Bay by July 2023.  We are now working toward the next goal to restore an additional 85 acres in Phases 5-7.  Together, we can Save Crystal River!

After every acre is replanted, the mission does not end, but rather starts again. We must protect our waters through Responsible Anchoring and Education to ensure we preserve our waterways for future generations and a better tomorrow.
