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. To achieve this. we plant trees. enlist volunteers in tree planting and care. promote year-round educational events. monitor the city’s tree canopy. work with elected officials and community groups to protect and care for existing trees and encourage the addition of new ones. Other activities include co-sponsorship of Earth Day Mount Dora. an annual event of over 20 years. We also serve as Wolfbranch Preserve Pals to our area’s only waterfall feature.
We are a Florida nonprofit. proud partner of Mount Dora Community Trust. 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. We work locally. while using resources and thoughts provided globally. and are committed to putting our “feet on the street” and our “hands in the ground” as well as serving as a voice for local environmental advocacy.
