Members & Volunteers Always Needed!  How To Volunteer & Participate...

The Friends are an active and dedicated group of volunteers. Everyone contributes differently; some offer financial support, others spend many hours volunteering, and for many, it is a little of both. Volunteers really are our greatest asset and the backbone of our organization. Volunteers help with events/fundraising, administrative tasks, park operations and education, and they help spread the word about the mission of our organization. Please consider giving of your time and talents – you may get back way more than you give!
Special talent or skill to offer? Please tell us!

The daily, monthly or occasional volunteer involvement with the Friends or in the Park will nourish your spirits. You will love the experience you get in a close, personal setting, working with fellow Friends or park rangers. You will meet many friendly faces and others who share your compassion for Wakulla Springs.

For more information and/or to sign-up as a volunteer, please contact volunteer coordinator, Jackie Turner, Park Services Specialist at 850-561-7281 or email her: Jackie.M.Turner@FloridaDEP.gov contact us
