Big Spring

Donor recognition opportunity available

Carter County, Missouri

Statistics show that this is the largest single outlet spring in the world, with an average daily output of two hundred eighty six million gallons. That amount of water would fill five thousand standard-sized bathtubs every minute. At fifty-eight degrees, it would make for some very cold, very brief baths! Statistics, though, do not do this place justice. Our eyes tell us much more. This is an incredibly beautiful and unique part of the world that exhibits a completely different personality in each season of the year.
