We are an organization dedicated to keeping our community clean. Road trash is our pet peeve and the area that needs the most attention. We are thinking – we have quit teaching our kids not to litter. That “someone” will pick it up. Trash on our roadways or in our waterways is harmful to our eco-system. We want to protect our precious eco-system!
This is where you can help! Yes, we need you. We need you to come out and help pick up this trash along the roadways and keep it from going any further. Talk to your kids or your grand kids and tell them littering is an awful thing to do and harmful to our environment.
We do two river clean ups each month. One on the north end of the Wekiva River out of Wekiva Falls (always the first Saturday of the month) and a second river clean up at Wekiva Island (usually the last Saturday of the month). In between we do a road clean up, tree planting, invasive removal or clean up at a local school that needs some attention!
The Wekiva River, one of Florida’s two Wild & Scenic Rivers and an Aquatic Preserve. Rent a canoe, kayak or paddle board and float down the river. If you take it in then bring it back out. Don’t leave your trash on the river to harm our precious wild life. Nitrates are harmful to our water – do you fertilize your lawn? Do you know what you are spraying on your lawn? Do you have a septic tank? Do you properly care for it?
Winter Wonderland is back again, and we’re excited to celebrate the festive season all December long. In addition to our well-loved activities like daily “snow” flurries, the Christmas tree forest and our 24-ft tall tree, and visits from your favorite Christmas characters, Santa is inviting all the good boys and girls for the first time ever to his Workshop, right here at Wekiva Island.
