Freshwater Wetlands and Aquatic Ecosystems
- Florida has both the largest freshwater lake and the largest freshwater
spring (Wakulla Springs) in the
contiguous United States. This makes Florida a very rare state with
a lot of aquatic diversity, from the mangroves that prevent erosion
to the swamps and marshes that naturally filter our water.
