The Florida Acquisition and Restoration Coucil approved Rainbow River Conservation's application to have Nine Island Cove placed on the Florida Forever List of natural land parcels tht need preserving. RRC and the City of Dunnellon will now seek grant funding for the acquisition of this property. The goal is to make this a natural resource based park with trails and a boardwalk along the river.
Rainbow River Conservation acquired a grant from the Duke Energy Foundation to develop and install two Wayside Exhibits that have been placed along the multi-use trail connecting Blue Run of Dunnellon Park with the Cross Florida greenway trail system. The exhibits feature the Railroad History of early Dunnellon and the Discovery of Phosphate that drove industry in the early 1900's
