We Got A Volunteer Job!

This pictures is borrowed from the state parks website.


Those of you who read this blog a lot, know that I have been looking for a volunteer job that both kids can do and that suits our needs. Because they are so far in age it was not easy to find one for both. Since I have limited access to the car during the week, and work weekends, I was getting a little frustrated. But patience payed off. One of the ladies in our playgroup had told me that they volunteer at the State Park Nature Reserve in Cedar Key. She asked if we would like to as well? I almost fell off my chair with excitement. The ranger has approved us, and we start Wednesday. We will go every other Wednesday, and help with the ranger's needs. Since they are young it will be stuff like picking up litter, stuffing envelopes, etc. But they will get to see wildlife, and we can go to the Gulf for lunch, which is where Cedar Key is. Since Caitlin and I only wear Crocs, I had to purchase appropriate shoes for walking along nature trails. We are excited! For those of you who are curious about lessons, you know some of you are, this will count as volunteer work as well as Science education. I am hoping we will learn a lot about the area, especially since we are not native to Florida. I am sharing a link because for those of you who live in Florida, actually I think it is for any state park, and you frequent state parks you can share your photography on their website. Be sure to check it out if interested. We signed up.
