Let's G.O.! CREW Trail Work Day
Sunday, April 1, 2012 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM (EDT)
Want to get outside and make a big difference in your community?
Come help the CREW Land & Water Trust and Conservation Collier open up some new hiking and biking trails at the Caracara Prairie Preserve, located adjacent to the CREW Cypress Dome Trails.
Help install marker posts, paint trail markers, put up signs, and clean up the new trail! We need people willing to do this manual labor outdoors to get the trails ready to open to the public! You can be a part of this exciting adventure!
Sign up today so we know how many folks we can count on for our work teams. Bring your friends. FGCU students can earn 5 to 8 service-learning hours, depending on how long you stay to work.
Bring gloves if you have them, water to drink, sunscreen, hat, sturdy shoes and a great attitude. A snack or lunch would be a good idea, too. And bring your service-learning forms with you.
This event is being co-sponsored by the CREW Land & Water Trust and Collier County's Conservation Collier program, as well as FGCU and the Boys Scouts of America.
Let’s G.O.! is a youth-inspired, youth-led Children & Nature Network initiative to rally people of all ages to Play, Serve and Celebrate outside.
Last year over 100,000 people participated in Let’s G.O.!
You are the change makers and the inspiration for this, so don’t be a stranger and Let’s G.O.! Get Outside!!!
When & Where
CREW Land & Water Trust
The CREW Land & Water Trust was established in 1989 as a nonprofit organization to coordinate the land acquisition, land management, and public use of the 60,000-acre Corkscrew Regional Ecosystem Watershed. We work closely with our partners, the South Florida Water Management District and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to ensure the protection of the watershed. This watershed, the largest intact watershed in south Florida, straddles Lee and Collier Counties and provides aquifer recharge, natural flood protection, water purification, preservation of wildlife habitat, and public recreation. CREW's majestic 5,000-acre marsh is the headwaters for the entire watershed.
