Miami-Dade County’s Environmentally Endangered Lands (EEL) Program was created in 1990 to purchase and preserve over 20,000 acres of native pinelands lands and other sensitive areas.
Each year, the EEL program looks for volunteers to help restore and maintain these endangered areas. “The workdays are fun, hands-on activities throughout all kinds of interesting natural areas.” Workdays are from 9 a.m. to noon unless otherwise noted.
Here is January’s EEL volunteer schedule:
- Saturday, Jan. 10: Arch Creek Park and Preserve, 1855 NE 135th Street, North Miami, Work: Trail maintenance
- Friday, Jan. 16: East Greynolds Park, 16700 Biscayne Boulevard — by the dog park, Work: Clean up
- Saturday, Jan. 24: Deering Estate at Cutler – North Addition Preserve, 16701 SW 72nd Avenue, Miami, Work: Clean up
