Treasuring stewardship

Join ERM's team to preserve, protect, and restore your eco-treasures. Do you need community service hours or are you looking to give back your time and attention to the environment? We have many programs that allow volunteers to lend a hand once in awhile or on a regular basis. The choice is yours!

Short-term projects for busy individuals or a group who want to make a difference in their community. These "hands-on" environmental projects (plantings, trash cleanups, exotic plant removal) last three hours and do not require training or long-term commitment.

​Adopt-a-Natural Area

This program provides a framework for individuals, civic groups and businesses to help promote and maintain County-owned and managed natural areas through various means such as hosting guided tours at a natural area; promoting natural areas at nature/environmental events; participating in beautification projects such as trash clean ups, plantings or graffiti removal. To apply, call (561) 233-2400 or email erm-natural@pbcgov.com.

Get in the Know

Do you want to know when the next natural area is opened, how the sea turtle nesting numbers are stacking up, or what invasive exotic plant is causing problems for land managers? You can find the answers to these questions in the ERM's quarterly Environmental Times newsletter.​​
