To help counteract Floridas water quality degradation and support complimentary bottom-up policy development, a community visual-assessment program entitled Florida Assessment of Blackwater Streams Survey FABS focuses on helping identify generalized health of riparian systems through public participation.
By hosting community-volunteer events on the Econlockhatchee River to test the plausibility and possible long-term effects of the FABS survey, results indicated the participants ability to accurately identify the necessary landscape patterns.
Therefore, by studying place-based bioregional theories and civic environmentalism, FABS strives to become a feasible community development tool to support place recognition, environmental consciousness, and landscape literacy within communities of the Saint Johns River Watershed.
