Timucuan Parks Foundation Self-Guided Volunteer Events
Students can earn community service hours from now through Dec. 2 by collecting litter at a park. Timucuan Parks Foundation is once again offering a way for students to earn community service hours. Students can visit a local park or preserve from now through Dec. 2 to help clean up litter and earn community service hours. Two hours of community service will be allowed per cleanup event, plus the students will be entered into a weekly drawing for a chance to win Mayday’s Handcrafted Ice Creams gift cards. They will also have a chance to win one of three Hydro Flask water bottles that will be awarded at the end of the fall program.
Students can visit timucuanparks.org/parks/ to choose one of Jacksonville’s national, state, or city preservation parks for their cleanup event. (Please note that Fort Caroline National Memorial and Kingsley Plantation are currently not open due to the COVID-19 pandemic.) TPF asks that you spend 1.5 to 2 hours cleaning up the park. They suggest going with a family member or friend, wearing a mask, and following social distancing guidelines. Volunteers should bring three to four large trash bags, protective gloves, insect repellent, sunscreen, water and a snack.
