"Education is for improving the lives of others and for leaving your community and world better than you found it." ~ Marian Wright Edelman
EARTH DAY MOUNT DORA is one of our annual educational events in which we provide an opportunity for our area's organizations with responsibilities for our nature-based resources to provide information to the public on what they do and where their projects or meetings occur.
WOLF BRANCH PRESERVE is a 154-acre public preserve only 5 minutes from downtown Mount Dora. It is home to our only waterfall (seasonal). During the rainy season and significant rain events, the waterfall formed by Wolf Branch Creek drains a 5 square mile basin. Wolf Branch Creek then runs a short distance to a sinkhole which absorbs all the water that reaches the waterfall area directly into our aquifer and is our future drinking water supply. We help the Lake County Water Authority (LCWA) as volunteers in educating our community about the importance of our water resources, water quality, and conservation.
RAIN BARREL WORKSHOPS are held several times a year, and at EARTH DAY, to help people assemble and learn to use rain barrels for supplementing their gardens with rain water.
