The goals of the Florida Park Service include maintaining our lands in the historical conditions they were found in prior to the arrival of the European Explorers in the 14 th century. With our present-day neighbors landscaping with exotic tropical vegetation, this becomes a never-ending process for us as birds and wind scatter seeds into the park continuously.
We need volunteers to help while we physically cut down some of these plants and trees, and pile them up or remove them. Its physical work performed in high heat and humidity conditions. It’s a great opportunity to escape your urban lifestyle for a few hours and get back to nature. Be forewarned that it involves strenuous work. We work from about 8 am to noon to avoid the hottest part of the day, and we work on weekdays and weekends.
