Volunteer Clean-Up: Florida City Pineland Preserve

Miami-Dade’s Environmental Endangered Lands (EEL) Program manages and protects more than 20,000 acres of rare and unique habitats throughout the county. Every year from September through May, volunteers help restore these native habitats with clean-up activities, removing exotic & invasive species, and even enhancing the trails.

Volunteers are taught to identify various invasive non-native plants while gaining a greater understanding of the local habitats and rare ecosystems unique to South
Florida.

On Friday, March 24, from 9:00 a.m. to noon, volunteers will be working at the Florida City Pineland Preserve at Palm Drive & SW 8th Avenue. If you would like to volunteer, register by email at eel@miamidade.gov or by calling 305-372-6611. Community hours are available. For more information: 2016-2017 EEL volunteer workdays brochure
