Become a Deering Estate Steward: Volunteer for a Day of Conservation!

Calling all nature enthusiasts and conservation champions! Deering Estate seeks passionate volunteers to join their dedicated team in preserving and restoring this historical landmark. Lend a helping hand and make a lasting impact on this beautiful ecosystem.

Guided by Experts: Under the knowledgeable guidance of Deering Estate’s professional naturalists, you’ll embark on a meaningful journey of environmental stewardship. Through a variety of carefully planned projects, you’ll contribute directly to the estate’s conservation and restoration goals.

Diverse Projects for Every Volunteer:

  • Eradicating Invasive Plants: Invasive species can disrupt the delicate balance of an ecosystem. By removing them, you’ll help native plants flourish and ensure the estate’s biodiversity thrives.
  • Planting Native Species: Become a champion for native flora! Engage in the rewarding task of planting native trees, shrubs, and flowers, creating a haven for local wildlife and enriching the natural landscape.
  • Mulching Magic: Mulch plays a vital role in retaining moisture and suppressing weed growth. Contribute to healthy and vibrant plant life by applying mulch to strategically chosen areas.
  • Cleaning Up for a Brighter Future: Keeping the estate clean is crucial. Lend a hand by collecting litter and debris, ensuring the natural beauty of Deering Estate shines through.

Ready to Embrace the Challenge?

While anyone with a passion for the environment can participate, it’s important to be prepared for Florida’s unique climate.

  • Florida’s Sunshine and Humidity: Be prepared to work outdoors in the warmth and humidity that defines Florida’s climate. Dress appropriately for the conditions.

Gear Up for a Rewarding Day:

  • Punctuality Matters: Arrive a few minutes before your designated start time to ensure a smooth check-in process and maximize your volunteer experience.
  • Dressing for Success: Since most activities will take place in partially forested areas, closed-toe shoes, long-sleeved shirts, and long pants are mandatory. Protect yourself from the elements by bringing a reusable water bottle to stay hydrated.
  • We’ve Got Your Back: Don’t worry about equipment – Deering Estate will provide gloves, a water cooler, and receptacles for collected trash or plant material.
  • Documenting Your Contribution: If you require community service hour verification, simply request a confirmation letter from the park staff after the event. They’ll be happy to email it to you.

By volunteering at Deering Estate, you’ll become more than just a visitor; you’ll become a steward. You’ll be playing a vital role in safeguarding this historical treasure and ensuring its natural splendor thrives for generations to come. Be part of the solution, give back to nature, and discover the joy of conservation at Deering Estate.
