Preserve Ambassadors

Student: Kyle Kenney

A pilot project created to increase overall campus-wide use and awareness of UNF’s Sawmill Slough Preserve. Through a variety of events, new students learned about the preserve’s flora, fauna, eco-functions, and value. The program included two components: 1) creating a core group of volunteers known as “Preserve Ambassadors;” and, 2) hosting events to attract a diverse student population into the preserve and other natural areas within our community, with a focus on social interaction and enjoyment so participants could garner their own value for these natural areas.
