The Ichetucknee Partnership to umbrella various groups

Published April 25, 2008
Some would say that history was made Thursday morning as local government, business and civic leaders and environmentalists joined to celebrate the official launch of The Ichetucknee Partnership (TIP).

For many in attendance, TIP is the culmination of a decade of springs protection initiatives, backed by concerned environmentalists and naturalists who have toiled for nearly a decade to raise public and political awareness about the necessity to protect the extremely rare beauty of the Ichetucknee River and springs.

...many fragmentary but successful springs protection efforts have been ongoing, but TIP hopes to bring all facets together in a combined voice so that it can talk more effective in its presentation to politicians in Tallahassee.
