Published 9/24/08 - Wakulla.com
In honor of both National Public Lands Day and National Estuaries Day on September 27, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is encouraging Floridians and visitors to participate in educational activities statewide that will highlight the annual celebrations.  There are events taking place at state parks as well as the DEP-managed greenways and trails statewide, while events being held at Florida’s three National Estuarine Research Reserves, managed by the Florida DEP, will hold events exploring estuary habitats and wildlife. There will be several events where volunteers and families can participate in restoration and land management projects.

Wakulla Springs State Park will celebrate National Public Lands Day on Saturday, September 27, 2008.  Volunteers will join staff in repairing portions of the nature trails to improve visitor access.  Work clothes and shoes are required.  Work gloves and a water bottle are suggested.  Lunch will be provided to all participants.  The event will take place from 
9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at Wakulla Springs State Park, 550 Wakulla Park Drive, Wakulla Springs, Florida.  Call (850) 926-0700 for more information about the event.  Visit www.floridastateparks.org/WAKULLASPRINGS/ to learn more about Wakulla Springs State Park.
