ASA – Aquatic Science Association, Inc. was founded in Texas in 2008 for research and conservation of underground water resources through exploration and education. With its roots in caves and cave diving, ASA has expanded to Florida and its offices are now in Crawfordville, Florida. ASA has taken a priority effort to start a reversal of centuries of dumping in sinkholes and springs with the removal of trash and debris that was left behind. Working in conjunction with Keep Wakulla County Beautiful, Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park, Jacob’s Well Nature Center/Hayes County, Texas, National Forest Service/USDA and ongoing partnership formations with other organizations and individual citizens, we all can achieve the goal of returning our most precious natural resource back to its natural state.
ASA Mission Statement
It is the intent of ASA to acquire land through acquisition and stewardship programs to be held in public trust for conservation and protection of natural resources. With the managed lands we are able to conduct extensive scientific research and exploration to further the knowledge of our staff who provide direct community support with educational programs and conservation initiatives.
