About

Every Monday morning at 7:45 am a group of volunteers gets together at Oakland Nature Preserve to work on various habitat restoration projects. These projects are led by restoration experts Jim Helmers and Jackie Rolly. It is an opportunity to help Oakland Nature Preserve while learning about Florida's native and invasive plant species.

All of our habitat restoration at the Preserve is done by volunteers, with more than 5,000 hours of service completed per year here! Through volunteer effort, Oakland Nature Preserve has increased its native plant population, providing vital habitat for gopher tortoises, bobcats, and various bird species.

By volunteering with Oakland Nature Preserve, not only will you enjoy a day outdoors, but you become part of our awesome volunteer restoration legacy!

We also sign off on any community service hours.

Volunteers should wear close-toed shoes, and long pants are preferable. Bring a reusable water bottle and work gloves.
