Give A Day for the Bay Nov. 1st at Lowry Park Zoo

Give-a-Day for the Bay is looking for 15 volunteers to spend a few hours at Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo.

Give-a-Day for the Bay is a program of the Tampa Bay Estuary Program to directly involve residents in restoring Tampa Bay. Half-day workdays are held several times a year, at various parks and preserves throughout the Tampa Bay watershed. Removal of invasive plants is a primary focus of the workdays, along with native plant installation, to help restore important coastal and upland habitats throughout the bay watershed.

In the case of the Lowry Park Zoo work day, volunteers will help remove invasive plants in the Ha-Ha area – by the elephants – from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. Nov. 1. As a special reward, volunteers will be able to enjoy the park, 1101 W Sligh Ave., Tampa, once the work is done. To register, click here. Questions? Call Misty Cladas, Tampa Bay Estuary Program, (727) 893-2765.
