Nature Preserve Volunteer Day
July 23, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Show your Panther Pride at the Preserve!!! The FIU Nature Preserve (NP) provides many opportunities for students and non-students to get involved in various volunteer activities. We have projects and activities for all skill levels; such as but not limited to: tree and brush cutting, invasive species control, plantings, habitat improvements, and nature/ recreation trails maintenance.
All volunteer shifts are 3 hours and include a tour of the preserve. If a volunteer or class would like to participate in a volunteer activity that starts or ends at a different time or date an event request form must be submitted 2 weeks prior for approval. This helps to ensure the Naturalist is aware of the special arrangement and can accommodate your request. Individuals who do not make arrangements in advance will not be allowed to interrupt the naturalist due to the logistical and safety risk posed to the work plan and expected participants.
Be on time. Anyone that shows up more than 10 minutes late may not be allowed to participate. Volunteers are responsible for their own parking (visitors must park/pay at metered spaces).
Meet at the north entrance of the Nature Preserve. It is across the street from the Wellness and Recreation Center at the Nature Preserve Map sign at the entrance of the trail.
Come prepared. closed toe shoes required, long pants/sleeves, hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen are recommended. Volunteers should bring a reusable water bottle as we will provide ice-cold drinking water. All participants are required to sign a release form prior to participation. They will be given to you at the start of the volunteer day. Volunteers under the age of 18 must have parental signature. No children under 16 may be left unattended. If you need a waiver ahead of time for your parent or guardian to sign, please visit our website to download it. http://gogreen.fiu.edu/topics/the-nature-preserve/index.html
