Mead Botanical Garden, Inc., and The City of Winter Park are seeking volunteers interested in habitat restoration to assist with removal of non-native, invasive plants within several key areas with Mead Garden. These plants destroy habitat by crowding out native plants that fauna rely on for food, cover, and nesting sites.
Volunteers will be cutting invasive camphor tree saplings, cutting invasive vines, removing other non-native vegetation, and picking up litter throughout the property. A limited number of cutting tools will be provided for the invasive plant control. Volunteers should bring their own cutting tools, like loppers or hand pruners, and gardening gloves, if available. Closed-toed shoes and long pants are recommended. Bring a refillable water bottle to stay hydrated.
Water coolers and snacks provided.
Volunteers will be required to complete a waiver. Please complete the waiver and bring it with you, if possible. We will have extras on the day of the event.
This is a great opportunity to be outside and get some exercise while helping your community and local wildlife.
Please complete the registration using an email address that you will have access to on the morning of the event. If the event is canceled due to weather or any other reason we will send out an email to everyone who registered.
