What we're about
Upcoming events (4+)
Please join Central Florida Recon as we gather with the friends and staff of the City of Casselberry, Florida to honor Marissa Williams, former Natural Resources Officer who passed away unexpectedly this year. Marissa had a passion for protecting the environment, exploring the great outdoors, and educating others about water conservation. This event is open to all Central Florida Recon members.
🔰 We will meet at the Venetian Ramp, a public ramp and launch on Lake Conway to cleanup trash and litter. Kayaks will be shared on a first to arrive, first to launch basis. Based on the number of RSVP's we receive, if we have more volunteers than kayaks we will take turns, first group out for 45 minutes, second group out for 45 minutes. We look forward to seeing you on Lake Conway.
🌸 Please join Central Florida Recon as we partner with the City of Winter Park and Ideas For Us to remove trash from Lake Maitland. You do not need to own your own vessel to join us, we will launch at Kraft Azalea Park where there is a lovely green space where volunteers can walk with a bucket and trash grabber and pick up litter. Hope to see you there. 👒
Join us this post-Thanksgiving weekend as we enjoy the shady waters of Black Water Creek and the pristine beauty of Lake Norris! This will be our second Eco Tour here and will be a great event to get some fresh air after Thanksgiving festivities.
In contrast to our normal cleanups of urban and often polluted waterways, on our Eco Tour we will be paddling to enjoy a fairly unspoiled stretch of Natural Florida. We clean waterways for the sake of the animals and to restore them to their former natural state and Lake Norris is close to what we aim for.
We will have a minimum of 8 kayaks available including paddles and equipment. To reserve a kayak, please leave a comment below. All paddlers are welcome to bring their own craft as well.
There is a parking lot next to our launch site but no restroom facilities or potable water are on-site. Please bring water and a hat. Hope to see you there and Happy Thanksgiving!!
