All planting dates have two start times: 7:30 am (to avoid the heat) and 8:30 am, and you can choose either as you sign up. We’ll be wrapping up around 11 am.

Each planting date will cover one zone, and we’ll have shade, cold drinks, and watermelon!

These workdays are part of ... a multiyear effort by the Ridge Rangers to gather and pot scrub-oak acorns, maintain the sprouts, and plant the resulting baby oaks in damaged scrub oak habitat to help endangered species on the Lake Wales Ridge.
