Second Saturday of the month, 9 a.m. Volunteers clean up trash, plant native plants, and/or remove non-native invasive plants. Students can earn community service hours for graduation and college scholarships, and others can help improve and preserve the environment. Volunteers should dress appropriately with long sleeves, long pants, and closed-toe shoes that can get dirty. Participants should bring gloves, a hat, sunscreen, insect repellent, and drinking water. Extra tools such as shovels, rakes, and hand pruners are welcome. A volunteer form must be filled out in order to participate. Free. 

Wonderful Reptiles Third Saturday of the month, 10 a.m. Meet some of the native reptiles that call South Florida and Secret Woods home. Free.

Jamming in the Park Fourth Sunday of the month, 1 p.m. Bring your favorite instrument and join in an acoustic music jam. Free.

Volunteers Needed! 
Learn about photography, painting, recycling, plants, and nature as you volunteer to help at our special events. Hike our trails and pick up litter, plant native trees, remove exotic plants, or maintain our geocaches and letterboxes. Feeling crafty? Design and create signs, decorations, and games for our upcoming programs. Need community service hours to graduate? We'll customize a program tailored to your interests and schedule.
