The Gulf Consortium, through its subrecipient, Jefferson County, will expand and improve public access to Wacissa River Park. The county will complete a feasibility study, and based upon this assessment, will determine if property acquisition and improvements on lands adjacent to the park, east of Wacissa Springs Rd, Jefferson County, FL, are appropriate. Completion of the project will increase access and recreational opportunities on the river, improve public safety, all while decreasing the impacts to natural resources resulting from overuse.
