The Department of Environmental Protection’s Wakulla Springs State Park will be hosting an event for National Public Lands Day, which is the largest volunteer service event on behalf of our nation's public lands. At Wakulla Springs volunteers are needed to help restore the Cherokee Sink area. Volunteers will be planting trees near the sink to reduce erosion by restoring natural vegetation. This event is co-sponsered by the Friends of Wakulla Springs State Park, Inc. Space is limited, so registration is requried. Work clothes and shoes are required; gloves and a water bottle are suggested. Participants are asked to bring their own lunch or purchase in the park. Following lunch, volunteers are welcome to take a guided river boat tour of the beautiful Wakulla River.
Fees: Park entrance fees will be waived to participants.
