A battle over the Rainbow

A new Dunnellon City Council brings new hope

Rainbow River Conservation Inc., which has about 250 paid members and has been in existence since 1962, is a non-profit corporation registered in Dunnellon. RRC's sole objective is to protect the river and its resident wildlife from harm. RRC has been instrumental in influencing the state to establish Rainbow Springs State Park and to purchase the Griffitts' property to add to the park. RRC has also been instrumental in getting the Rainbow River classified as a Florida Outstanding Water, an aquatic preserve, and to be listed under the Surface Water Improvement and Management (SWIM) Plan, all of which should afford it special protection.
