Salt Springs Alliance is asking for donations to be provided to Werner-Boyce Salt Springs State Park to build a living history display section to demonstrate the importance of the Salt Springs to the early settlers, Civil War efforts, & our community.

On behalf of the Salt Springs Alliance, the Citizens Support Group, for Werner-Boyce Salt Springs State Park, we request your donationsfor the building of our interactive historical display project called Salt Springs Alive. We are so excited to begin this project to bring a wonderfully informative and teaching area to our state park by building an interactive historical display within the trails of the park!  The park is rich with the history of our communities humble beginning, we seek to bring that history with a set of informative historical kiosks located at the Salt Springs Trail that will help enable visitors to see, feel, touch and interact with that history.  This project is more than just displays, it will enable the Salt Works of our history to come alive for visitors!

The displays will include artifacts, video and media guides, historical information, and a true historical cast iron Salt Pot.  The display will not only inform visitors of the importance of salt and our community to civil war efforts and early settlers, but help visitors understand what life was like in early Pasco County.  The display will include a working salt pot area and enable Park Rangers to demostrate the process used by settlers to make salt for preserving meats in early times for educational purposes.   

We have been fortunate enough to receive a donation of an actual cast iron pot AND the rangers have found some building supplies and the Park Manager has approved the staff to build the displays, but we need your help in donations to make a truly wonderful display area for this history to come alive. We need money to buy building supplies, media equipment, and artifacts.   The money raised for this campaign will be given to the park for supplies and expenses related to building Salt Works Alive!! Please help us help our park.

Please realize Salt Springs Alliance is a not for profit organization established and dedicated to raising funds and awareness of Werner-Boyce Salt Springs State Park.  Proceeds to SSA, are proceeds for Werner-Boyce Salt Springs State Park.
