In Memory of Vincent Spontak and John H. Hankinson, Jr. The Ocklawaha River was dammed in 1968 severing this magnificent riverway blocking the historic river route for fish, manatees, and boaters from Silver Springs to the Atlantic Ocean. The dam is now past its life expectancy. Make a difference by supporting public education and outreach about the importance of Ocklawaha River Restoration.
