​​​​Natural Area Site Workdays

Broward County Parks and Recreation Division has 21 designated natural areas. These natural areas are important for the indigenous flora and fauna they preserve, including rare and endangered species. 

Volunteers are also important to the preservation of these historic plant and animal communities. Parks and Recreation relies on volunteers to help restore and protect natural areas by, for example, helping remove invasive plants that threaten to overrun native habitats. 

Volunteers not only contribute a valuable service, they also learn about Broward County’s ecosystems in the process, with the natural areas serving as informal laboratories. For high school students, volunteer hours they contribute count toward service hours required for graduation. 

Volunteers must wear closed-toe shoes and long pants to participate in a natural area workday. Long sleeves, hats and sunscreen are also recommended. Gloves, eye protection and drinking water are provided. All participants must also fill out a Volunteer Application prior to taking part in a workday. Volunteers under age 18 must have a parent/guardian’s signature on the form, and a parent/guardian must accompany any volunteer under age 13.
