Author Tom Berson talks about how Florida’s springs are not only unique in their size and number, they are also emblematic of a forgotten Florida, a mysterious frontier that once stirred the national imagination. Before Disney or even the growth of coastal resorts attracted visitors to Florida, travelers ventured in droves into the wild and enchanting Florida interior to visit the springs. This talk examines how springs were—and still are—symbolic representations of natural Florida, and how they continue to stand at the critical and fragile intersection with growth and development.
