Timucuan Parks Foundation and JaxParks are hosting a summer volunteer opportunity at the Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail Trail on Wednesday, July 7. Volunteers should meet at the Otis Road trailhead of the Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail Trail at 1380 Otis Rd. at 9 a.m. to assist with the maintenance of a rough-cut trail. Volunteers should wear closed-toe shoes, clothes that can get dirty, and bring work gloves (if possible), sunscreen, insect repellent, a hat, sunglasses and a full reusable water bottle. Timucuan Parks Foundation will have additional work gloves, equipment and supplies, and will provide snacks and water.
Volunteers of all ages are welcome and can use this volunteer event to earn community service hours. Those 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. Registration is not required. Waivers can be obtained in advance at timucuanparks.com/volunteer/.
