Lemon Creek Wildflower Preserve is an 80-acre nature preserve owned by non-profit Lemon Bay Conservancy. The preserve suffered extensive damage from Hurricane Ian, both from downed trees and from large amounts of household debris that blew in from neighboring communities. Eighty acres is a huge space to clean-up and the Conservancy is asking for your help!
Please join us for a volunteer cleanup morning on Saturday, December 10th, 2022.
- Volunteers are needed to pull household debris (aluminum, styrofoam, shingles, etc.) out of the vegetation and stack the piles along the trails for pickup and transport to the street.
- Volunteers with chain saw experience are needed to cut damaged trees and eliminate safety hazards. Bring your own chainsaw and safety equipment or use equipment we will have available.
- Help from volunteer landscaping professionals with bobcats or other tree clearing machinery would also be very beneficial.
When: Saturday morning, December 10, arrive at 7 am or later. Sign-in at the parking lot to be assigned a work location within the preserve.
Where: Lemon Creek Wildflower Preserve, 3120 Gasparilla Pines Blvd, Englewood, FL 34224
What: Hurricane debris cleanup. Wear outdoor work clothes, boots, and gloves. Hats and bug spray also recommended.
