The Florida Museum of Natural History presents its newest galleria exhibit "The Blue Path: Protecting Florida's Springs" from Aug. 12 through Dec. 12.

Explore the state's spring system and water cycle that shapes the landscape through photographs, paintings and displays by north central Florida's best artists, writers, filmmakers, educators and scientists. The exhibit examines how everyday choices can either deplete and destroy or restore the state's water supply. It is suitable for all ages and admission is free.

Coordinated by Florida's Eden, a nonprofit citizen initiative dedicated to protecting Florida's natural resources and building a sustainable and prosperous economy, the exhibit launches the Blue Path grassroots campaign to protect the state's freshwater springs. The images and displays emphasize a "conservation first" strategy to preserving Florida's valuable water resources.
