spring to life
Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
Many dormant branches of our organization are now springing to (active) life.
spring to life = revive, come back to life, become alive
Thanks for your efforts.

Re: spring to life
Yes, although I don't think "spring to active life" sounds very natural. I would remove "active" and it would still mean the same.
