Paradise found ☀️. Florida is filled with an abundance of beautiful natural springs, but this one completely blew me away. The striking clarity of the iridescent blue water reveals a 20 foot wide opening to a cavern below which is only accessible to divers. Paddling along the crystal clear water was definitely an experience I’ll never forget. We had an adventure filled week exploring the diverse and ever changing landscapes of Florida. Each region we visited had something unique to offer and I can’t wait to share more! VISIT FLORIDA #lovefl Gilchrist County Tourist Development Council

Less than a week to preregister for our fishing tournament next weekend. You will still be able to register on Friday night April 30th at the Captain's Dinner at 6:00 pm at Salt Creek Restaurant in Suwannee. The river continues to go down and both freshwater Bass and saltwater inshore fishing are reportedly very good.

Trail Safety v10_6-29

With our sunny skies and active lifestyles, Florida’s residents and visitors enjoy exploring our many miles of trails. Trail safety is important, particularly where trails and roadways cross. We all need to do our part to protect one another and prevent crashes. Whether as a motorist or trail user, we have a shared responsibility to:

1. Look and Listen
2. Obey Signs and Markings
3. Take Control of Our Own Safety

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) have joined together to put the spotlight on this important topic.

Watch this video for an important message and to learn about trail safety.

Effective May 4, 2020 Gilchrist County offices and departments will resume normal operations. We will continue with safe distancing measures and limit access to the courthouse and other county offices as necessary to provide a safe environment for our residents and employees. We strongly encourage everyone to utilize online services when available.
• Gilchrist County Boat Ramps will be opening to the public.
• Hart Springs Campground – Opening May 1, 2020

Please remember to avoid congregating and practice social distancing.

As a community, state, nation, and world, our lives have been turned upside down for the past six weeks by the Covid-19 Virus. Our citizens have stepped up and we have “flattened the curve” by following the CDC protocols and the Governor’s Executive Orders. The impact to people’s jobs, businesses, and the overall economy have been significant. The Governor’s “Phase 1 Restart of Florida” order #20-112 will be effective as of May 4, 2020, respectively, Gilchrist County will begin to take steps to move forward from this crisis.

We will continue to recommend all CDC guidelines including:
• Wash your hands often
• Avoid close contact
• Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others
• Cover coughs and sneezes
• Clean and disinfect
• If you or your children have signs of sickness (fever, cough, etc.) – please stay home or call your medical provider for further direction.
• Social distancing should be practiced.

Thank you again for your help in defeating this pandemic and helping support our local businesses during these difficult times. We appreciate everyone doing their part in keeping Gilchrist County safe!

Stay Safe!!
