The organizations are looking for volunteers to join them on Friday, Aug. 2 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Betz-Tiger Point Preserve, north end of Pumpkin Hill Rd. for the final summer volunteer project.
Volunteers are asked to meet at 9 a.m. in the parking area. They are asked to wear closed-toe shoes and to bring work gloves, loppers, and clippers (if they have them), sunscreen, insect repellent, a hat, sunglasses, and a full reusable water bottle. Timucuan Parks Foundation will have additional work gloves, tools, and supplies and will provide Nature Valley granola bars and water. Volunteers of all ages are welcome. Volunteers under 18 must have a waiver signed by a parent or guardian. Children under 16 must be accompanied by a parent, guardian or scout leader during the project. Volunteers are eligible for community service hours.

About Timucuan Parks Foundation
The Timucuan Parks Foundation is a nonprofit organization that preserves, promotes and protects Jacksonville’s vast network of preservation parks. The foundation originated in 1999 with the Preservation Project Jacksonville, Inc. to identify and assist in acquiring the most vulnerable and environmentally sensitive lands in Duval County. The acquisition of lands created the largest urban park system in the United States. The Timucuan Parks Foundation works with park partners, including the National Park Service, Florida State Parks and the City of Jacksonville, to promote environmental stewardship, the health benefits of the parks and preserves, and an appreciation for Jacksonville’s special outdoor spaces.
