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.
