VOLUNTEER WORKDAYS - EXOTIC PLANT REMOVAL
Jonathan Dickinson State Park

Date: 2nd & 4th Sunday of the month - 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Description:

Learn about invasive exotic plant species and make a difference at Jonathan Dickinson State Park with an exotic plant removal project every 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month from 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.

Beginning at 9:00 a.m., park staff and volunteers will identify and remove non-native invasive plants, including Kalanchoe and Madagascar Periwinkle, while learning how these species negatively affect Florida’s natural communities. The second Sunday of the month will involve pulling and bagging invasive weeds and the fourth Sunday of each month will include the use of hand tools (minimum age 18). Park entry is free for volunteers on these workdays. Volunteers who reach 100 hours of service in the park receive free entry into the park for a year as a regular service volunteer. These workdays provide excellent opportunities to obtain those hours.

Volunteers will meet park staff at Pine Grove Pavilion and are encouraged to be prepared with work gloves, close-toed shoes, long sleeve shirt, pants, hat, sunscreen, water bottle, and a snack. Water will be provided. RSVP is encouraged but not required, please contact the Kimbell Center at (561) 745-5551 or libby.reinert@dep.state.fl.us. Volunteers under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or part of an organized group with an adult leader.

Fees: Free park entry for volunteer participants.
