About

Come join us on a Saturday or during the week to help with our Boardwalk Renovation Project!

Thanks to the generosity of a very special donor, we finally have the lumber and tools needed to replace the broken & damaged boards on our beautiful boardwalk, we just need volunteers!

Our iconic boardwalk was built solely by volunteers in the late 90's with the removal of only one large tree! It is one of only 3 public access points to the famous Lake Apopka. By far our most popular trail, this 2/3 mile long winding pathway through mostly shaded wetlands, sees thousands of visitors per year.

Our most recent pressure washing revealed several damaged boards, that need to be removed & replaced. We plan to gather volunteers, staff & board members to remove and replace these damaged boards.

Come join us and be part of this amazing legacy!

Volunteers should wear close-toed shoes, and long-pants are preferable. We will provide work gloves.

If you are interested in this or other volunteer opportunities, contact Denise at outreach@oaklandnaturepreserve.org for more information, or to sign up!
