The Seminole Education, Restoration and Volunteer (SERV) Program works to actively restore and educate people on how to protect the waterways and natural areas of Seminole County.

Current Health Safety Guidelines for COVID-19:

We have some volunteer options currently available, and we hope to have more opportunities in Fall 2020. Please read our SERV Event Guidelines for Health Safety for more information. However, please note that Waterway Restoration Projects will be suspended until 2021 due to logistical challenges related to health safety.

How to join:

It’s easy! Simply email serv@seminolecountyfl.gov or call (407) 665-2457 and let us know that you would like to be involved. Volunteers of all ages are welcome!
