Celebrate National Public Lands Day by removing nonnative invasive plants that threaten Florida's natural ecosystems.
Participants will be working in a natural area of the park (be prepared to go off trail!) with our AmeriCorps members.
We will meet at 9am and work until 11am, but we will provide details regarding the specific meeting/work site closer to the event (we're monitoring the water levels and need to wait and see what the conditions are closer to the event). We will contact everyone who has RSVP'd with the location details. RSVP for this event on www.prairiefriends.org , the Friends of Paynes Prairie website.
Participation is limited to 20 participants. All ages welcome.
Please be prepared to work in outdoor conditions. You will need closed toe shoes that you don't mind getting muddy, gloves, garden tools if you have them, sunblock, bug spray, and most importantly a water bottle. We will provide the garbage bags and have an igloo of water to refill water bottles as needed.
No fees for event event participants
