One of our projects to benefit wild animals is to be responsible stewards of the environment that we share with them.
We have joined the National litter awareness program by sponsoring multiple “Adopt-a-Highway” locations in two Florida counties so far. This project provides a cleaner, greener environment for humans and animals alike, and is a short-simple way to make a real difference.
The cleanup date we are recruiting volunteers for right now is in Citrus County, FL. We have more dates coming soon in Marion County, .
Between mile markers 3-5 on W Ozello Trail, Crystal River, FL- the road leading into the pristine St. Martin’s Aquatic Preserve. Parking on the roadside is limited, so we will be meeting at a nearby restaurant to carpool (and have lunch and beverages afterward!)
In early celebration of Earth Day, we will be meeting at 9:00 am on Friday, April 21, 2023. We hope to complete the 2-mile road cleanup in 2-3 hours.
