We’ll be moving irrigation line from the old ground cover restoration (GCR) site to an adjoining location and preparing the site for planting (next work days).  

This will help us plan where to plant for the next few work days.


Please wear sturdy footwear, long pants, long sleeves (or a T with sunscreen), and a hat. Please bring your work gloves and hiker’s water bottle or similar.

 We’ll have plenty of cold drinking and all the tools needed.

So we can plan properly, please let us know that you're coming by registering on this webpage (see button at top).


Directions to FWC Royce Unit

From the corner of US 27 and CR 621 in Lake Placid, go east on CR 621 1.7 miles to Hallmark Ave. 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. You will see a tall, white irrigation tower along the fence, and the gate is just beyond it. You will be able to park along the side of the road in this area. 


  

This workday is part of Project Acorn ... a multiyear effort by the Ridge Rangers to gather and pot scrub-oak acorns, maintain the sprouts, and plant the resulting baby oaks in damaged scrub oak habitat on the Lake Wales Ridge.


The FWC Royce Unit is part of the Lake Wales Ridge Wildlife and Environmental Area. The most distinctive natural community on the Lake Wales Ridge is scrub, home to one of the rarest collections of plants and animals in the world. Healthy scrub has the appearance of a miniature forest with trees seldom taller than 10 feet and open patches of sand. The WEA contains 20 of 22 federally listed plant species known to occur on the Lake Wales Ridge.
