Volunteers needed for environmental cleanup

Volunteers are wanted to pitch in and help at the annual Environmentally Sensitive Lands Volunteer Workdays.

Work days are scheduled at the Cypress Lakes Preserve, 33241 Ridge Manor Blvd. (at the gate on Olancha Road), on these days: Sept. 25, Oct. 30, Jan. 29 and March 26. Volunteers will work from 8 a.m. to noon each day.

Those interested can help with general cleaning up of trash and debris, and clearing of small trees. The Hernando County Planning Department staff will oversee the work and provide a guided nature walk at the completion of work, for those who wish to go.

Volunteers should wear long pants, long sleeves and sturdy shoes with closed toes. Bring your own gloves, eye and hearing protection, insect repellent, sunscreen and drinking water. Small tools, such as pruning saws, bow saws, chain saws, rakes and hoes, as well as a 5-gallon bucket, would also be useful.

Free oak firewood will be available to all volunteers.

For information, call Jim King at the Hernando County Planning Department, (352) 754-4057, ext. 28020.
