Description:

Spend your Saturday along the Adopt-A-Trail Program with Orange Park Acres. The Equestrian Community would love your assistance in helping to maintain the trails.

Volunteers for this project will be engaging in picking up trash and removing invasive vegetation along the brushy banks of the creek. Invasive vegetation includes palm tree seedlings, tumbleweeds, and castor bean plants.

Volunteers will need to bring their own gloves and spade shovels. Don't forget to bring water with you, use sunscreen and bug repellent. Also wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty and closed-toe shoes.

Minimum age to volunteer is 16 years old with an adult.

Since you'll be meeting in a residential area, the location of parking, meeting and such is as follows: 
Parking Location:  Near N. Creekview Drive and No Where Trail
Gathering Place (with tools):  Handy Creek via No Where Trail
Project Location:  One third mile stretch along Handy Creek in Orange Park Acres, Orange
Map for OPA project (Use this as your reference)

**Don’t forget: Love Orange’s Kick-Off will be held at Orange High School at 8am. Check in starts at 7:30am. You’ll receive your t-shirt, coffee and breakfast. Plus you’ll get to meet our community partners. It’s a great way to start our serve day - See you there!!

About OPA (Orange Park Acres) and our neighborhood volunteers…
OPA Adopt-A-Trail Program: To An Equestrian Community Trails Are Like Jewels -- Trails are not just an amenity to the Orange Park Acres community; they are the structural backbone that helps to hold the community together. They are prized and appreciated by all who use and live near them. Most remarkably, most of the trails within OPA are funded and maintained solely through the efforts of volunteers; an army of volunteers in fact. With this in mind, the OPA Adopt-a-Trail program was created, so that all can help in keeping our OPA trail system safe, healthy, and inviting for everyone.
