Description

Join the movement in removing exotic and invasive plant species from our state lands. Assist Park Rangers in restoring the historic sandhill habitat at Suwannee River State Park by removing plants not indigenous to Florida. Volunteers will have free entry to the park on the day of the event and are encouraged to bring a picnic and enjoy the views from the bluff overlooking the Suwannee River.

We will meet at the Ranger Station at 9 a.m. for orientation. We will chat briefly on the history of Suwannee River and its impact on Florida in the 19th and 20th century. We will then move to the trail head and hike to the restoration area.

Be sure to wear long pants and closed-toe shoes. It is recommended to bring gloves, drinking water, sunscreen and bug spray for this project.
