Join the nation's largest, single-day volunteer effort for public lands by serving at Ravine Gardens State Park for National Public Lands Day 2016!
Bring your family, friends, students, or coworkers to spend the day outdoors giving back to your community by pulling invasive plant species, maintaining trails, picking up trash, and more.
Participants will get FREE entry into the park for the ENTIRE day, an educational program to prepare for service, and a guided wagon tour of the park!
Following service, participants will also enjoy a free lunch provided by the park's nonprofit Citizen Support Organization, the Friends of Ravine Gardens!
Your work will help ensure our public lands continue to be beautiful places for all to enjoy!
Volunteers may be individuals or organized groups. Please read the Essential Eligibility Criteria to participate. RSVP by registering on this page. See you there!
Do I need any experience?
Not at all! Prior to our hike, we will have a quick educational training program as well as a Guided Wagon Tour of the park so you are knowledgeable and prepared for service!
Do I need to bring anything?
Equipment for work will be provided by the park. However, if you prefer your own set of work gloves, feel free to bring them! We recommend bringing a water bottle, we will have water for you to fill up your canteen as needed.
What should I wear?
Wear clothes that are comfortable and you don't mind getting dirty. We also recommend wearing closed-toed shoes that you can hike in, sun protection, and bug protection.
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
If you have any questions, please contact Chanell Guillaume, Park Services Specialist, at 386-329-3721 or at Chanell.Guillaume@dep.state.fl.us.
