Event description

Description

Join the Panhandle Chapter as they maintain the Steephead section of Pine Log State Forest.

Pine Log State Forest, purchased in 1936, is Florida's first state forest. Using an ecosystem management approach, the Florida Forest Service provides for multiple uses of the forest resources. The forest is managed for timber, wildlife, outdoor recreation and ecological restoration. It is home to a diverse mixture of animal and plant species, including the following endangered, threatened species and species of special concern: flatwoods salamander, gopher tortoise, southern milkweed, white-top pitcher-plant and Chapman's crownbeards. There are various natural communities found on the forest. They include sandhills, flatwoods, cypress ponds and titi swamps. Pine Log State Forest has three named streams (Pine Log Creek, Little Crooked Creek and Ditch Branch), as well as several small lakes and ponds.

The work will be focused on recovery efforts from Hurricane Michael, clearing debris and making the Florida Trail along Econfina River accessible again using mechanized equipment and hand tools.

Hiking boots (description below) and long pants are required. Long-sleeve t-shirts are recommended.

This event is a free volunteer opportunity. Join our crew and have fun!
