Volunteers restoring wildlife habitat in Central Florida
Ridge Rangers are currently gathering thousands of scrub oak acorns, and we’ll be potting them with attendees at upcoming community festivals. The potted acorns will then be maintained in the native plant nursery at the FWC Royce Unit for the next six months, and the sprouts planted next summer by Ridge Rangers in scrub restoration areas on the Lake Wales Ridge … hopefully resulting in great habitat for endangered species like scrub jays!

The Ridge Rangers are an organization of volunteers helping to restore wildlife habitat on the Lake Wales Ridge and nearby areas in central Florida by doing group workdays and individual efforts directly on conservation areas.
The Ridge Rangers are sponsored by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, and work with all conservation agencies on the Lake Wales Ridge.
