You really can make a difference! By volunteering in the preserves, you will make a positive impact on the environment. Volunteers help preserve the homes of native plants and animals, re-establishing much-needed habitat. The work completed by volunteers will also help to secure the land for the enjoyment of future generations. All individuals are welcome to apply to become a volunteer - we have lots of different jobs available! 

Projects can be adapted for any age range or group size, too. And each opportunity is more than just service work - volunteers learn about Florida's ecosystems while working to help preserve them. Whether you're working with a scout troop, school group, or adult club our Volunteer Coordinator can help create an opportunity for you!
