Biologist to be honored

Gov., Cabinet to recognize Savery for making Wakulla Springs' future 'clearer'
Published February 27, 2007 Tallahasse Democrat
As he drove a glass-bottom boat over Wakulla Springs on Monday, Scott Savery said he feels more hopeful about the park's future than he did in the late 1990s.

That was after Savery first discovered hydrilla, a foreign plant species, growing in the spring in 1997. He watched as hydrilla and algae choked the springs and turned the water green and cloudier - as it appeared Monday through the boat's glass bottom.
