Chapter Workday

Everglades National Park

Please join us in enhancing the entrance to ENP with restoration and maintenance of the native habitat at the Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center, begun in 2001. Contact Patty (305-878-5705) with questions or if the weather is questionable. (We rarely cancel!)

We will be pruning and weeding. Small hand tools and gloves are provided, or bring your own. Prepare for sun and possible mosquitoes by wearing long sleeves and pants. Head nets (use over a wide-brimmed hat) and bug spray are available if needed, but bring your own if possible. We provide cold water; bring snacks to share if you care to. Volunteers have free ENP admission afterwards.
