Timucuan Parks Foundation’s Spring Self-Guided Volunteer Cleanup Program

June 29 @ 4:00 am

Timucuan Parks Foundation’s Spring Self-Guided Volunteer Cleanup Program is now open to students and community members. From now through the end of June, anyone can pick up litter at Jacksonville’s wilderness parks and preserves and earn two hours of community service. To participate, visit timucuanparks.org/parks to choose one of the many parks around Jacksonville and spend at least one and a half hours cleaning up. Parks not listed on the site are also eligible for clean-up events. Ask friends and/or family to join you and dress appropriately in breathable clothes that can get dirty, closed-toe shoes, and a hat. Bring insect repellent, sunscreen, water and a snack, and also trash bags, protective gloves, and a camera to document the work. Do not pick up anything sharp or pointy or any dead animals and the trash bags should be filled about half or three-quarters of the way to allow for easy lifting and tying.

 

The work must be documented through photographs. Participants should take before and after selfies, pictures of those working alongside them, and a final snapshot with the trash bags. When finished cleaning up, place the trash bags in or around a park trash receptacle or take them to throw away in a trash receptacle if none are available at the park. Email the photographs to [email protected] or share the photos and park location on social media using #tpfcleanup or @timucuanparks. Also, fill out the parks cleanup form which can be found at https://www.timucuanparks.org/self-guided/. An email confirmation of the two hours of community service hours will be sent to participants.
