Nature Preserve Volunteer Day

February 5, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 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.


  • Registration is not mandatory for individuals. If you have a group of 5 or more people, please notify us ahead of time so that we have proper staffing. You can contact the Office of University Sustainability at 305-348-3717, FIU.edu, or GoGreen@fiu.edu!
  • 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 and we will provide ice-cold drinking water.
