ST. PETERSBURG - High school students who yearn to learn about the environment and earn Bright Futures volunteer hours can check out the Ranger Naturalist Program at Weedon Island Preserve.

The program runs June 13 through Aug. 8 and introduces high school students to the wonders of Weedon Island in St. Petersburg. Students will be scheduled to volunteer at Weedon Island Preserve from 12 to 16 hours per week. The program days are set for Thursdays and Fridays, with some Saturday commitments required. The program will not be held the week of Independence Day.

All volunteers will be trained to assist guests that are visiting the Weedon Island Preserve Cultural and Natural History Center and trails, as well as develop individual projects that support the mission of the center.

Applications for the program must be received by Friday, May 30, and students will be notified of their acceptance into the program by Friday, June 6.

To register for the program or to get more information, visit https://rangernaturalist2014.eventbrite.com or email Libby Carnahan at lcarnahan@pinellascounty.org or call 727-453-6522.

Weedon Island Preserve protects more than 3,700 acres of natural ecosystems and is located at 1800 Weedon Drive NE in St. Petersburg. The preserve is operated under the Pinellas County Parks and Conservation Resources Department and is open to the public seven days a week, including holidays, from 7 a.m. to 15 minutes before sunset. Its many outdoor activities include walking trails, a fishing pier and a canoe/kayak launch.
