Welcome to the Habitat Restoration Team’s 2017 season. If you’re a first timer, don’t worry about not knowing what to do. We have plenty of instructions and lots of experienced volunteers to guide you. The man in the middle of photo number one, Marcos, joined The Preserve when he was old enough to walk and the two guys beside him have both been with the preserve for 20 years or so.
You won’t have to work alone and will probably meet someone your own age and; will definitely see parts of The Preserve not open to the general public. Wild places, beautiful places, and significant habitat from five or ten different ecosystems just waiting to be restored and expanded. This activity is open to children over the age of 8; volunteers under the age of 16, must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
