Literally. At the Florida Scrub-Jay Trail, volunteering is for the birds…and the butterflies…and the gopher tortoises…and the bees…and the habitat…and the environment…and the future!
Saturday, September 26, 2020, will be a spectacular fall day with temperatures “dipping” into the high 80’s – a perfect day to experience the joys of volunteering for trail maintenance. Come early and start your day with sunrise yoga by the lake. Yoga is for the birds, too, as they sing and call and tweet and chirp – we never know what birds will come to check out our tree pose.

Trailwork gets underway at 8:30 a.m. and goes until 11:00 a.m. 

Bring your water bottle - we will supply plenty of cold water to refill your bottle.  Other things to bring are gloves, hat, sunscreen, shovel, and pruning shears. We have a limited supply of tools to share so don’t worry if you don’t have your own. 
We continue to have recommended safe practices in place and a lot of acres to spread out on. Let us know you're coming - RSVP to 352-429-5566  or  info@scrubjaytrail.org.
Before trail work begins, fall into
Sunrise Yoga  

Dianna leads us through calming,
reflective, poses that are suitable for any experience level.

All you need to bring is your mat and your enthusiasm. 
( 7:00 a.m., No charge)
VIRTUAL EVENT - OCTOBER 22, 2020   12:00 - 5:00PM
Additional Webinars and Tours - TBD

At OUTSIDE, our goal is to shift the Florida landscape paradigm
towards more sustainable landscaping.

Let's shift the Florida landscape paradigm together.

With a focus on the intersection of academia, industry, and government, we will work collectively by defining relevant issues and building a strategic framework to advance sustainable landscaping in the state. OUTSIDE will provide a forum for collaboration by sharing the best practices and showcasing innovative projects which guide us toward sustainability.
