Crystal Springs Preserve is 525 acres of natural wilderness surrounding Crystal Springs, a Magnitude 2 spring that discharges 30 million gallons of water daily. A non-profit educational facility, Crystal Springs Foundation, operates on site with programs that show diverse ecosystems via trails, boardwalks, a wildlife pavilion, a butterfly garden and a nature center. The preserve is privately owned by Crystal Springs Preserve, Inc., a closely held private company. The spring is the source for Zephyrhills Natural Spring Water, a commercially bottled water product. The water that is bottled represents less than 1% of the flow of the Spring.
