Cleaning Florida's waterways and natural lands since 1993

WHO WE ARE

In Florida, every square foot of land directly impacts the health of our drinking water resource (the underground aquifer system) and the ocean. It's very simple to take steps to preserve the quality of those precious bodies of water. A part of being a citizen on this planet is caring for those downstream from me- what kind of world am I leaving for those impacted by my actions? We can start by removing waste that leaches chemicals into our waterways and preventing future waste.

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. Twenty seven years later, this grassroots organization has expanded its focus to include urban creeks, rivers, ponds and lakes throughout north central Florida.

HOW WE STARTED

Current Problems was established in 1993 when a small group of friends began working together to clean up the trash and contaminants in and along the banks of north Florida’s Santa Fe River.  Twenty five years later, this grassroots organization has expanded its focus to include urban creeks, rivers, ponds and lakes throughout north central Florida. Not only do we hold cleanups, but we provide educational materials and outreach to the public in an effort to improve water quality in our area.

OUR MISSION

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.
