Heartwood Preserve Volunteer Day October 20
Enjoy getting your hands dirty and connecting with nature?
Heartwood Preserve’s Volunteer Day is a day of service that demonstrates and celebrates the power of “Friends of Heartwood Preserve”, who volunteer together, supporting their neighborhood and this natural habitat.
Heartwood Preserve Volunteer Roles & Responsibilities:
You will help our Nature Preserve by removing exotic invasive weeds, maintaining our native wildflower beds, grooming trails and more! Your efforts will help with the upkeep of this ecosystem for wildlife as well as create a beautiful place for the community to enjoy! You will also learn about plants that belong, and those that don’t. We will be working outdoors, so please dress in weather appropriate attire, wear sturdy closed-toed shoes (old sneakers or boots), sun protection and be sure to bring a water bottle. We will have cool water to refill bottles, along with snacks, to keep everyone hydrated & fortified.
*Please RSVP by Monday, 10/15/18*
Ages 12 and up are welcome (ages 12 to 17 must have parent/guardian sign a release). Volunteer hours are provided when you bring your company or school forms.

Heartwood Preserve is a natural cemetery within a 41-acre conservation sanctuary located in the New Port Richey area. We conserve the natural habitats found here—longleaf pine flatwoods and cypress dome wetlands. Burials do not take place in the wetland areas. Every family who chooses the burial of a loved one at Heartwood is an integral part of protecting this special environment.
Heartwood Preserve is located at 4100 Starkey Blvd, Trinity, FL 34655 and can be reached at (727) 376–5111.
