"It's the little things citizens do. That's what will make the difference. My little thing is planting trees." ~Wangari Maathai
Since 1994, Mount Dora Friends of the Environment's mission has been to preserve, protect and promote nature-based resources in our area to further enhance the natural beauty of our City and economy. We have done this by planting trees. Other activities include co-sponsorship of EARTH DAY MOUNT DORA, an annual event of 20 years and the ADOPT A PARK, where we take care of the Sculpture garden and Community Building grounds. We also serve as WOLF BRANCH PRESERVE PALS to our area’s only water-fall feature. We are a Florida nonprofit, all volunteer organization dedicated to protecting and preserving the environment through education, community outreach and local projects. We believe in local cooperative partnerships, actions and programs. To achieve this we engage locally, while using resources and thoughts provided globally, and are committed to putting our “feet in the street” and our “hands in the ground” as well as serving as a voice for local environmental advocacy.
