This month I have had many opportunities the “give back” by
volunteering on some of the lands I love to visit. The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission has put together a wonderful network for the public
to have the opportunity to not only learn more about what is in their “back
yard” but to also do good for those lands. You do not have to be young or strong or an expert of any kind to volunteer. This month I have planted wire grass and pine trees, prepped land for a prescribed burn and even counted butterflies!
Children are encouraged to attend with their parents (I promise they will sleep well after a day in the forest to!). Some of the work can be tough, you just need to take a moment and review what the volunteer activity requites prior to signing up.
Volunteer leaders are very appreciative of the help and are always generous in answering questions about the project. I have gotten to meet many local biologist, interns and students that are all just wanting do to their part to give back and share their knowledge to help protect these lands and animals.
