Memorial Day activities at the Wildlife Park

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park will offer special activities to remember and honor all who served our Country. Volunteer Carla Nicklas is coordinating this event.

Volunteers will be collecting items for the Mission in Citrus Homeless Veterans Shelter in Inverness, Florida. They need the following items: toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, and laundry soap. (They do not need food items.)

Carla Nicklas will also be encouraging visitors to participate in Operation Welcome Home and Honor Flights by writing notes to veterans of World War II and the Korean War who will be participating in an Honor Flight on June 6, and to Citrus County residents who are serving overseas.

For more information, please call Susan Strawbridge at (352) 628-5445, ext. 1002, or Carla Nicklas at (352) 257-1480.
