St. Johns River Cleanup Reddie point Mar 2021

Get Outdoors With OurVolunteer Opportunities

Join the Timucuan Parks Foundation in helping the parks with volunteer shoreline and park cleanups, trail maintenance, invasive plant removals, and more.

For all projects, volunteers must wear closed-toed shoes and it is highly recommended that they bring sunscreen, insect repellent, a hat, sunglasses and a reusable water bottle. Tools, work gloves, water, and Nature Valley granola bars will be provided.

Volunteers must follow all park rules and policies as well as promote and exhibit safe behavior at all times.

Children under 16 must be supervised by their parent/guardian or scout leader during the project. Anyone under 18 years old must have the signature of a parent/guardian on the liability waiver prior to starting work.

Our fall self-guided cleanup program is underway. Visit our Self-Guided Cleanups page for more information on how students can earn community service hours by helping our parks and preserves.
