Remove Exotic Plants at Bok Tower Gardens!

This is one of five volunteer work events helping to fight exotic plants on National Public Lands Day on the Lake Wales Ridge. Exotic species crowd out native species and cause environmental harm, and your effort removing invasives in a conservation area will be very helpful!

This event at Bok Tower Garden is now full. Please see the main website at NPLD on the Ridge for more opportunities. You may also contact the event coordinator at

Please bring your work gloves and wear long pants, long sleeves, and a hat and sun screen for sun protection. You may wish to bring hiker's water bottle (we'll have plenty of drinking water).

Driving Directions

From Highway 60 East or West:

Go to Lake Wales and proceed north on U.S. Highway 27. Turn right on Mountain Lake Cutoff Road. At the caution light, turn right (south) onto County Road 17 (also known as Scenic Highway). Proceed on CR 17 for 3/4 miles. Turn left (east) onto Burns Avenue (also known as County Road 17-A). Proceed on Burns Avenue for 1.3 miles. On your left you'll see a main entrance sign to Bok Tower Gardens. Turn left and proceed to the entrance gate. Let the gate attendant know that you're there for the exotics removal effort and you'll be told the exact meeting location in the conservation area at Bok.

National Public Lands Day on the Lake Wales Ridge is hosted by the Ridge Rangers -- an organization of volunteers who work with conservation agencies on and near the Lake Wales Ridge, helping to restore wildlife habitat. See
