Our mission is to restore and protect the water resources of North Central Florida for the wellbeing of wildlife and community through watershed cleanups and water quality outreach and education programs.
Current Problems was established in 1993 when a small group of friends began working together to clean up the debris and contaminants in and along the banks of north Florida’s Santa Fe River.
To this day, over 20,000 volunteers serving their communities from Southern Georgia to the gulf coast have worked to remove waste from waterways. Collaborating with the cities and counties in the surrounding area, we catalog and assess site locations of discarded waste harmful to our water resources. We organize groups of volunteers local to the rivers, lakes, and streams of North Central Florida to complete watershed cleanups often involving large debris waste removal, fully equip and lead the cleanups, and coordinate proper disposal and removal of waste. Our supporting programming includes native shoreline plantings, invasive plant species removal, and water quality outreach and education programs.
