PRLog - Oct. 12, 2012 - (Lake Worth, FL – October 9, 2012)  Nancy Marshall, President of the Arthur R. Marshall Foundation for the Everglades, which works for the restoration and preservation of the greater Everglades ecosystem, today announced that the nonprofit organization is hosting the 12th Annual Cypress Seed Harvest on Saturday, October 27, from 9 a.m. to noon. It will be held at the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge in Boynton Beach.

“Friends and families are invited to join us for our annual Cypress Seed Harvest,” said Nancy Marshall.  “This rain-or-shine event is appropriate for all ages, but small children will need to be closely supervised.”

Volunteers should wear closed-toe shoes, hats, sunglasses and sunscreen.  The Marshall Foundation will provide collection bags, harvesting tools and drinking water, although volunteers are encouraged to bring their own refillable water bottles to help reduce waste. Older volunteers can also bring ladders and/or rakes to help loosen high hanging seeds without damaging trees.

The Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge is located at 10216 Lee Road, on the west side of US441 and south of Boynton Beach Blvd.

For more information or to RSVP, please call 561.233-9004 or email info@artmarshall.com. Please RSVP by October 25, 2012.
