Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

The Seminole Education, Restoration, and Volunteer (SERV) Program works to actively restore the waterways and natural areas of Seminole County, and educate the public about why this is important.
We provide opportunities for volunteers to do lake restorations, invasive species removal, litter clean-up activities, and stormdrain marking in Seminole County. We also coordinate with the Adopt-A-Road and Adopt-A-River Programs. Working with SERV is a great way to give back to the community, earn volunteer hours for school or club requirements, and have fun outside while learning about our amazing natural resources. All ages are welcome.

This past weekend I was fortunate to volunteer with SERV for a restoration of Lake Jesup.
My experience was not only educational but also memorable. Being fairly new to the area it was awesome being able to get out and meet with like-minded individuals, ride on an airboat for my first time, and learn about some of the area's native, and even invasive plants.
I got my hands dirty, got some sun.. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for more opportunities with SERV.
