approximately 4000 trees need to be planted -- looking for all the help we can get!
Please bring a shovel, gloves, water bottle, hat, and wear long pants and closed-toed shoes.
We will have snacks, cold drinking water and all the tools we need. If you plan to stay beyond noon feel free to bring a boxed lunch.
Staff will be on site the full day to plant so you can stay as long as you want, or just help for an hour or two.
Meet at the Lake Louisa State Park Entrance Station
7305 US Highway 27, Clermont, FL 34714.
A short drive from Orlando, the 4,500 acre Lake Louisa State Park is noted for its beautiful lakes, rolling hills and scenic landscapes. Lake Louisa, the largest in a chain of 13 lakes, is designated as an Outstanding Florida Water Way. The park is home to 11 distinct natural plant communities and lies within the eastern most boundary of the Green Swamp (Area of Critical State Concern) and the northern most boundary of the Lake Wales Ridge. The presence of white-tail deer, bobcat, fox squirrel, raccoon, gopher tortoise, bald eagle, osprey and cypress fringed lakes makes nature study a great pastime. The park is located on US Highway 27, seven miles south of State Road 50 in Clermont.
