All Hands on Deck! Calling One and All to Volunteer in the Gulf!

from Wildlife Promise

Dreaming of taking your certified backyard habitat to the next level? Join me and National Wildlife Federation’s dedicated volunteer taskforce in restoring acres of critical marsh habitat in the Gulf of Mexico! 

Oyster Reef Restoration Volunteer Event Jan. 2011

While most Americans were glued to their TV sets watching in horror as oil spewed into the Gulf, NWF was taking aggressive measures to raise awareness, demand sound science, and protect human health, wildlife, and fragile habitat.  As we approach the one year anniversary of the BP oil disaster, NWF is still working hard to ensure the health and growth of vital habitat.  

Our commitment to the Gulf continues through partnerships with various state parks along Florida’s coastline.  One week from today, our first event kicks off just south of Tallahassee in Bald Point State Park.

Can’t dust off the Georgia boots in time?  We need volunteers throughout the month of March to assist with habitat restoration located in: 

• Bald Point State Park (Alligator Point, FL)

• Perdido Key State Park (Pensacola, FL)

• Topsail Hill Preserve State Park (Santa Rosa Beach, FL)

Keep checking back for more opportunities to volunteer this spring!   

So come join me and volunteers from near and far, in rolling up our sleeves to make a difference for nature and wildlife in the Gulf of Mexico.
