2018 Volunteer Class

Saturdays, January 20 – February 24, 2018

The Florida Medical Entomology Laboratory (FMEL) will offer its twenty-first Volunteer Nature Stewardship Class for the Oslo Riverfront Conservation Area (ORCA) on Saturday afternoons from 1:30pm to 4:30pm from January 20 through February 24, 2018. This 6-week, free class is taught by researchers and staff from the FMEL and other educational institutions. It provides an introduction to the understanding the habitats of the ORCA with classroom talks and field activities.

Class participants are asked to “volunteer back” and share what they have learned at the ORCA, another nature preserve, a nature center, or another venue. Classroom teachers, boy scout leaders, girl scout leaders, and other youth leaders are welcome. You craft how and where you “volunteer back”.

The class will be limited to 20 new participants. Please email the Program Coordinator Janice Broda at jbroda@ufl.edu to register.
