Lovers Key State Park

DESCRIPTION: Consider that one-third of the land in America is ours - public land where we can all hike, bike, climb, swim, explore, picnic or just plain relax. There’s a special joy in getting our hands dirty when it helps keep our land beautiful. National Public Lands Day is an opportunity to spruce up these lands while helping us get back to some of the places we love.

Lovers Key State Park will be hosting a Public Lands Workday on Saturday, September 30th from 9am -12pm. Join Lovers Key State Park's Rangers and Volunteers to help maintain the park's trails, remove exotic invasive species of plants, and pick up litter along the trails to help ensure Lovers Key is a wonderful place to visit and remains excellent habitat for the diversity of wildlife which inhabits the park. Volunteers must wear closed toed shoes. Refillable water bottles, sunscreen, hats, gloves, and bug repellent are highly recommended. Pre-registration for this event is required. To register, please contact the Ranger Station at (239) 463-4588.

Additional Information: 

On September 30th, thousands of volunteers around the nation will build trails and bridges, pull invasive weeds, plant trees, remove trash and have fun getting back to nature. At the same time, they’ll get quite a workout on America’s public lands - the gym with a view. They’ll learn about the human impact on parks and lands as well as take part in a service endeavor fed with the energy of volunteers in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and U.S. territories. Join the thousands who will take part in the 24th Annual National Public Lands Day and help do your part for America’s lands at Lovers Key State Park.
