About the Ridge Rangers

  • We help to restore and enhance native habitat, with activities like planting seedlings, removing invasive species, removing old debris and fences, collecting and sowing native seeds, and maintaining a native plant nursery.

  • We help efforts to re-introduce and support rare and endangered species on the Lake Wales Ridge like the scrub lupine, scrub jays, red cockaded woodpeckers, sand skinks, and many others.

  • We support biologists working on the Lake Wales Ridge ecosystem by doing scientific research and GPS/GIS mapping.

See the Ridge Rangers Calendar for more information on upcoming events.

There are no obligations and no dues to be a Ridge Ranger.



FWC Facts:
Just like fish, blue crabs use gills to breathe. But unlike fish, blue crabs can survive out of water for over 24 hours, as long as their gills are kept moist.
