Volunteers are needed to help rescue plants from a rare scrub habitat in Orlando before the bulldozers start to roll.  We have permission from the developer for this effort, and need to get the plants as soon as possible! 

Meet onsite at 8:00 am (and stay as long as you feel like helping)

We will be collecting seeds and cuttings when possible, but mostly digging up plants for later reintroduction into nearby protected areas.  Please wear clothing appropriate to work in the scrub (there will be chiggers, ticks, thorns, and deep sand) and bring sunscreen, drinking water, lunch, and any snacks or personal items you may need. 

Also, please bring a shovel if you have one.

There are no facilities onsite; however, fast food outlets and gas stations are within 1 mile of the site.

The work area is immediately to the south of South Lake Elementary School, and address of where we'll be meeting is 7900 Buenavista Woods Blvd, Orlando, FL 32836. See the map below
