St Sebastian River Preserve State Park Needs Volunteers

STSebastianRiverPreserveSignSt Sebastian River Preserve State Park Needs Volunteers this summer and into the early fall of this year and next. We accepted the assignment for August, September and October of 2015 but the other dates listed in the email are probably still available. We haven’t been able to travel much in the Southeast Florida Region and are looking forward to this assignment. Who knows we might even get a couple of more around this area to finish out the year and into the next one!

Letter From Wekiva River Basin State Parks

WekiwaSpringsSP04202014 (48) (Copy)We really enjoyed our short stay at Wekiwa Springs State Park over the Easter weekend. However, we just didn’t have time to check out the Lower Wekiva River or Rock Springs Run State Parks while we were there. We spent some time at Rock Springs when I was in high school but it has changed quite a lot since we lived in the central Florida area. We took lots of pictures of Wekiwa Springs, have written a quick review but thought it would be nice to share this email we received from the Volunteer Coordinator. They really could use some help this summer and who wouldn’t want to spend a couple of months in one of the three loveliest parks right around Orlando. It is a great place to start as live on-site volunteers and when it gets too hot you can always jump into the springs to cool off!

Hello Jolene,

Thank you for inquiring about volunteering here at Wekiwa River Basin State Parks. We are always on the lookout for great people with the desire to help others!
