Highlands Hammock Helping Hands!

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!

 100 volunteers at needed at Highlands Hammock State Park. If this event is full, please see our main webpage 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

Take US 27 towards Sebring and the southwest corner of Lake Jackson. At the corner of US 27 and Hammock Road, turn west on Hammock Road. (Hammock Road is between the Gates service station on the north and Inn on the Lakes to the south.) Follow Hammock Road 3.9 miles into the state park. Tell the Ranger at the gate that you're there for the Helping Hands event and follow the directions to the museum parking lot.

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
