Pine Shore Pineland Preserve Volunteer Opportunity
Pine Shore Pineland Preserve Volunteer Opportunity
We need your help to restore environmentally sensitive lands in Miami-Dade County! The Environmentally Endangered Lands (EEL) programs manages over 26,000 acres all over the county, including critically imperiled pine rocklands. It's not easy - but together, we will help protect and restore our rare native habitats by removing invasive plants, enhancing trails, restoring native vegetation, and conducting cleanup activities. You can get involved by joining one of our workdays scheduled from September to June. Volunteers are taught to identiy various invasive non-native plants while gaining a greater understanding of the local habitats and rare ecosystems unique to South Florida. Please email our Volunteer Manager at eel@miamidade.gov to register.
