About Save Crystal River

Save Crystal River is a 501(c)(3) dedicated to restoring the once beautiful and crystal clear Kings Bay in the central Gulf Coast region of Florida. We are fortunate to have received over 9 million dollars of legislative funding for the restoration efforts but that money can only be used for certain things. These generous grants and appropriations do not pay for permits that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, the educational outreach we do with the community and the local elementary school, the insurance we need to carry to operate, the one staff member hired to handle the administrative tasks, and the host of other expenses Save Crystal River incurs to make sure this bay gets cleaned. Every dollar raised goes toward ensuring this project is successful. Our overhead is minimal as we all work from home. Our board has donated over 12,000 hours of their time to get this project going. It is the only successful project in the state of Florida that has restored an eelgrass habitat. We have over 10 million plants now thriving in our restored areas!! Help us continue this vital work and support our mission to Restore Kings Bay.
