Remove Exotic Plants at Hilochee Wildlife Management Area!
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!
20 volunteers at needed at Hilochee. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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).
From the intersection of US 27 and I-4, head north on US 27 for about 9.6 miles until you reach the intersection with CR 474. Turn west on CR 474 and drive 3 miles until you reach the entrance of Hilochee WMA. Take the entrance road south to the meeting location at the office area.
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 myfwc.com/ridgerangers
