Through the new IDEAS community event -- The Hive -- launched in early February 2013, we developed a model to catalyze community action projects to advance sustainability and address the integrated Energy, Water, Food, Waste and Ecological challenges.
February Theme: ECOLOGY
Concept: Hosting a community action canoe clean-up event at Wekiva Springs State Park, on Sunday, April 7th, 2013. Our mission is to remove invasive Plants & Trash from the Little Wekiva River.
Paricipants: ONLY 40 PARTICIPANTS, first come, first serve!
Agenda: Arrive at Little Wekiva River for welcome message. Launch boats. Partake in trash clean up and invasive plant removal. After Party at Wekiva Island (Full Bar, Resturant, Swimming) from 3pm until who knows!
Perks: 1) Spend the day out in Nature and away from your smart phone and emails. 2) Enjoy a free Canoe all day long and paddle your heart out in nature. 3) Network like a pro out of your element and make a ton of new friends from the Central Florida "In-Crowd". 4) Complete the day enjoying delicious drinks at Wekiva Island, a environmentally sustainabile bar, resturant and canoe rental place. Welcome to your first day of Summer.
Partners: We have gained support from, FL Conservation Coalition, Friends of the Wekiva River, Wekiva Island, IDEAS Chapters, and hopefully YOU!
