FIU Earth Day- Pollinator Garden Planting PM

fiuearthday17flyerforcalendar

fiuearthday17flyerforcalendar

 

Join us for a very special volunteer day as we celebrate Earth Day! Our Earth Day activity will focus on expanding our pollinator gardens by planting flowering plants around the perimeter of the Preserve that attract pollinating insects such as butterflies and bees! 

 

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 2 hours and include a short 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.

·       Please RSVP at GoGreen.FIU.edu

·       Be on time. The Naturalist has the ability to turn away anyone who arrives more than 10 minutes late. Volunteers are responsible for their own parking (visitors must park/pay at metered spaces).

·       Meet at the east entrance of the Nature Preserve at the Nature Preserve Map sign at the entrance of the trail next to Parkview West.

·       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.

To schedule an internship, or conduct research at FIU’s Nature Preserve or Henington Island contact the Office of University Sustainability at (305) 348-3717, GoGreen.FIU.edu, or GoGreen@fiu.edu
