Saturday, October 6th | 9 AM- 12 PM | Sawpit Island Cleanup
Contact Emily Dunn, Stewardship Manager for more info: edunn@nflt.org

Join us to clean Sawpit Island as we wrap up the diamondback terrapin nesting season! This is a great chance to meet members of our Team Terrapin volunteer group, learn more about what we do, and find out how you can get involved. You’ll also be helping to improve diamondback terrapins’ chances for success next year.

Meet us at the Big Talbot Island boat ramp parking lot (https://goo.gl/maps/Wqhep6XpLvk) on the north end of the island. Wear closed-toe shoes and long pants, and be sure to bring plenty of water and sunscreen! Our group size is limited, as Sawpit Island is closed to the public. Any volunteers ages 12-18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. No volunteers under 12 years old. Be prepared for variable weather – we will work rain or shine, unless in the case of severe weather.

Education

Ongoing – Team Terrapin! Wildlife Monitoring Program
Contact Emily Dunn, Stewardship Coordinator for more info: edunn@northfloridalandtrust.org

Team Terrapin volunteers monitor a nesting diamondback terrapin population every day from April through October. Volunteers commit to monitoring one day either every week or every other week. Shifts vary depending on the time of year, but generally last no more than half a day. While monitoring, volunteers look for intact terrapin nests, predated nests, hatched nests, and adult terrapins laying nests.

 

Land Conservation Education | North Florida Land Trust Jacksonville FLOngoing –  Speak Up for Florida Forever Trainings

Despite a clear bipartisan mandate from the public to fund land conservation, the Florida legislature has chosen to allocate much of those funds toward other purposes. Contact us to schedule a training and to learn more about the Florida Water and Land Conservation Initiative and how to better advocate for the issues YOU care about.
