Help restore damaged scrub oak habitat by planting select acorns. It's easy and you'll see a special remote area of the Royce conservation area!

We'll be moving through an open sandy area and planting acorns collected by Ridge Rangers earlier this fall. We'll be using dibbles or other tools you can use while standing, and you won't need to kneel down to plant.

We'll meet in the main parking area by the offices at Royce (directions below). Please wear closed toe shoes and bring your work gloves and a hiker's water bottle or similar to carry drinking water.


This effort is part of Project Acorn – A multiyear effort to restore damaged scrub oak habitat on the Lake Wales Ridge.


Directions

From the corner of US 27 and CR 621 in Lake Placid, go east on CR 621 1.7 miles to Hallmark Avenue on the left. Turn left on Hallmark. After 3.6 miles the road makes a sharp left and sharp right and changes names to Royce Ranch Ave. After a total of 5.0 miles on Hallmark / Royce Ranch Ave, Royce Ranch is on the left, marked by an FWC logo. Turn left onto the driveway and follow it back to the offices.
