The City of Gainesville Nature Operations Division is looking for folks to get involved with our Gainesville Greenway Challenge project!
Here are the details:
- We focus on removing invasive and exotic plants at pre-determined locations in city parks with the help of volunteers. Volunteers will learn about the harmful effect of invasive and exotic plants on Florida ecosystems and get hands-on plant identification training.
- We keep track of all volunteer hours and present awards (and prizes!) at the annual Great Invader Raider Rally celebration to the individual or group with the most logged volunteer hours. The 2018 Rally will be held on January 27, 2018 to honor our 2017 volunteers. There is still time to win, so sign up soon here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeAhWC6zedtwiioqDGgN__LPqnUh4LZ0GhpmRb8YBBk-C7_uA/viewform
- We have recurring volunteer opportunities the first Saturday of each month, and every Thursday, from 9:00 to 11:30 AM, which are open to anyone, so any clubs or individuals interested in competing for the most logged volunteer hours can join us monthly.
- Individual or group work parties are available for scheduling upon request!
