What: Remove trash and possible trail maintenance
Where: Pondhawk Natural Area – Boca Raton
Directions: From I-95 exit at Yamato Road - head west on Yamato Road to Military Trail - turn left and head south on Military Trail to Spanish River Boulevard – turn left and head east on Spanish River Boulevard for roughly ½ mile – turn left into the parking lot of the Boca Raton Spanish River Library (1501 NW Spanish River Blvd.) – look for a white County truck to locate the volunteer meeting area (this will be on the far west side of the parking lot near the bridge to keep the parking spaces closer to the library entrance open for the library patrons).
Additional Information: Volunteers should wear old clothes and shoes as we will be working in brush-filled areas. Pants are recommended (wearing shorts could lead to legs getting scratched by thorny vegetation), along with sneakers or hiking boots, t-shirts, and hats. Poison ivy is found at this natural area. Restroom facilities are available inside the library. The Department will supply tools, gloves, and refreshments for the volunteers. Event participation is limited to the first 12 volunteers who register.
Sign Up: The volunteer projects are designed for volunteers ages 16 and older. Volunteers 15 and under must be accompanied by parent or guardian. Volunteers can register for an ERM event by calling 561-233-2426 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for helping the Department keep Palm Beach County clean and green.
