There are 160 state parks consisting of more than 700,000 acres, hosting more than 21 million visitors a year. Florida State Parks could not succeed without the help of volunteers. Volunteer opportunities are as diverse and numerous as the parks themselves. Individual volunteers contribute to Florida's state parks in a variety of ways: they may greet visitors, conduct tours, assist with special events, help rangers remove exotic plants or maintain the natural beauty of a beach, waterway or trail.

The Sierra Club is a national organization, but our effectiveness is largely in part to our volunteers at the grassroots level. This is especially true in your local Northeast Florida Group, where all of us are volunteers, spending what time we can to helping make our neighborhoods a better, safer, and more environmentally-friendly place to live.
