Love to get outside and volunteer?

Grab your friends and family to come out for a fun morning on Lake Jackson.

Leon County, in partnership with, Tall Timbers, Harry Smith Outdoors, Friends of Lake Jackson, Florida Department of Environmental Protection, and Sustainable Tallahassee will host an on-the-water clean-up of Lake Jackson.

Volunteers will spend the morning in canoes and kayaks to clean up litter – there will even be prizes for the strangest, largest, and oldest items found. Canoes and kayaks will be provided for those that don’t have their own, and beginners are welcome to join, as instructors will be on-site. Lunch will be served afterwards.

Minors are welcome to attend, but must be accompanied by a parent. Kids 12 and under should be in a canoe with an adult.

Canoes and kayaks will only be provided at the Rhoden Cove location. If you need to borrow a canoe/kayak or if you are a beginner bringing your own canoe/kayak, please volunteer at Rhoden Cove.

If you are a bringing your own canoe/kayak and are comfortable on the water, please volunteer at Crowder Landing and enjoy the hospitality of our great partner organizations.
