Volunteers Needed at the Oxbow Eco-Center Feb. 18
The Oxbow Eco-Center is looking for volunteers to help the environmental learning center get ready for its annual Earth Day celebration. Stop by the monthly Dirty Hands Day on Saturday, Feb. 18 from 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
This is a wonderful opportunity for you and your family or civic group to enjoy the sunny weather and Florida’s beautiful natural areas while giving back to your community through environmental stewardship.
With Oxbow’s annual Earth Day Festival on the horizon (April 29) this Dirty Hands Day will focus on continuing efforts to enhance the landscape around the center and giving visitors inspiring, peaceful areas to rest and take in the serene environment of the Pine Flatwoods. Volunteers will be getting their hands dirty weeding, raking, pulling invasive plants, and various other activities. Please bring a water bottle and closed-toe shoes. All tools will be provided. Pre-registration is not required.
Dirty Hands Days was developed with the intention of giving individuals and groups the chance to volunteer in the field of natural resource management and will take place every third Saturday of the month (December-April). The projects will vary depending on the needs of the Oxbow and St. Lucie County’s Environmental Resources Department, but could include re-planting the garden, trail maintenance, erosion control, and much more.
Located at 5400 NE St. James Drive in Port St. Lucie.
The Oxbow Eco-Center is a St. Lucie County Environmental Learning Center encompassing roughly 225 acres along the St. Lucie River. For more information visit www.oxboweco.com.
