Current Problems' mission is to preserve and protect the water resources of North Central Florida for the use and enjoyment of wildlife and humans through action, awareness, and education.
Current Problems is a 501c3 non-profit organization based out of Gainesville, Florida. Collaborating with cities, counties, and local agencies, we catalog site locations of discarded waste harmful to our water resources and organize groups of volunteers local to the rivers, lakes, and streams to complete watershed cleanups often involving large debris waste removal. Over our 27 years as an organization, we have expanded our focus to include urban creeks, rivers, ponds, sinkholes, and lakes throughout north central Florida and have developed shoreline replanting and restoration programs for homeowners and pollution prevention education for children.
We are aware of these increasingly difficult times which is why we've decided to take a few necessary precautions during our cleanups. Learn more about COVID safe volunteer options below.
