Environmentally Endangered Lands (EEL) Volunteer Workday Save the Date

The Miami-Dade County Environmentally, Endangered, Lands (EEL) Program would like to invite you to its first Volunteer Workday of the year, which will take place at the County Line Scrub EEL Preserve, located at NE 215 Street and NE 4 Avenue, on Saturday, January 23. The event is scheduled from 9 am till noon.

Every year, the Environmentally Endangered Lands (EEL) Program sponsors a series of environmentally workdays designed to help raise our community’s awareness about local native habitats. The goal of the EEL Workdays is to educate our community about ecosystems that once covered all of Miami-Dade County but now remain only in undeveloped and protected areas.


These native habitats, and the plants and animals that live there, are all a part of our shared natural heritage, and are resources to be treasured for generations to come. Volunteers help protect and restore EEL Preserves by removing exotic vegetation, enhancing trails, restoring native vegetation, and conducting clean-up activities. A complete list of EEL Workdays can be found on DERM’s website at  www.miamidade.gov/derm.
