Sawmill Slough Preserve - Ongoing

Volunteers are needed to assist with ongoing research projects in the Sawmill Slough Preserve. Volunteer opportunities include plant and animal surveys and species identification for the Campus Natural Assets Inventory (CNAI), water quality monitoring, pest plant control and other conservation and naturalist related field work. Those with particular interests in ichthyology, entomology, experimental biology and conservation ecology are encouraged to engage. Volunteers will not only have fun, but also gain valuable field experience.

If interested, contact the Environmental Center Ecologist, Justin Lemmons.

Garbage on the Green - Oct. 22, 2015

Garbage on the Green is a large waste audit on the UNF campus that takes place every October. At the event, over 100 volunteers sort and measure waste found on the UNF campus. This is a unique and fun event that has become a tradition on campus. In addition to the waste audit, there is an early morning campus cleanup. To register to volunteer or learn more information, please visit the Garbage on the Green website.

If you would like to really get involved, we are always looking for dedicated students to help plan and promote Garbage on the Green. Send us an e-mail today if you are interested!

Swoopin' up the Butts - Every Friday at noon

Together the Environmental Center and Healthy Ospreys are Swoopin’ up the Butts! This collaborative initiative to keep the campus butt free is taking place every Friday at locations around the University of North Florida. The campus became smoke free Aug. 1 and all cigarette receptacles have been removed. These cleanups are a fun way to help keep the university litter free during this important transition.
