The Enchanted Forest sanctuary trails and education center will be reopening to the public from Tuesday through Sunday, 9am to 5pm beginning on Tuesday May 19th.

Volunteers have been cleared by the county to return to work during the pandemic if they so choose. Right now the available task is Greeting at the hike desk. Volunteers will be recording visitor attendance data. If you are interested please call me at the center at 321-264-5185 to schedule a shift.

Staff will wear face masks when in visitor common areas, and it is recommended that volunteers do so as well.

In order to insure the well-being of both visitors, volunteers, and staff please be aware of the following social distancing guidelines:

  • Visitors are recommended to stay 6 feet apart from those they are not already quarantining with both indoors and outdoors.
  • Visitors will be allowed inside the education center in groups of fewer than 10 people.
  • Visitors will use the front double glass doors across the screen porch to enter the building and exit through the side bathroom door.
  • Inside the building there will be arrows taped to the floor to direct the flow of visitors.
  • Visitors will be directed to only use the bathroom facilities with those they are already quarantining with.
  • All in person education programs/events are currently suspended until further notice.

Volunteer Protocol

Please be sure to call or email me directly to schedule a shift before coming in to volunteer.

At this time I am not scheduling more than 1 volunteer per shift. In order to make sure we avoid having too many people occupying the same space, I need to know who is planning on coming in and when. This is also important so I can properly enter your volunteer hours manually (if you don't log them at home), so we can avoid using the ipad in the office.

Right now the available task is Greeting at the hike desk. Volunteers will be recording visitor attendance data. If you are interested please call me at the center at 321-264-5185 or email me at to schedule a shift.

Thank you for your patience and continued understanding in following the social distancing guidelines that keep us all safe.

Calling All Volunteers & Guides!


Hike desk, exhibit area and trail hosts are needed. Responsibilities include: greeting visitors at the center and on the trails; providing general information, guidance and trail maps; assisting visitors with hands on educational exhibits. Hosts are primarily needed on Saturdays and Sundays.

The Shoppe in the Forest

Sharon Bohlmann and JoAnn Trainer would like to invite you to join the Volunteers in the beautiful Shoppe in the Forest. It is a fine place to spend some time and help some people find a trinket for themselves or a gift for a loved one. It's a good opportunity to leam more about our Sanctuary, and to encourage our Visitors also. Great conversations take place in and around the Shoppe and Science Hall. Visitors gather and chat, hover and discover! So come, join the little Shoppe in the Forest! Click here for more information.

The Enchanted Forest gift Shoppe invites volunteers.

Gift Shoppe Help Wanted

For the past 10 years the Shoppe in the Enchanted Forest has provided visitors with reminders of their visit. Proceeds from sales go toward educational programs in the forest provided by both staff and volunteers. The Shoppe carries educational games for children of all ages, books for nature lovers, gifts for that special someone, t-shirts that spell out your love of the forest and unusual treasures for travelers passing through.

The present shopkeeper is now 10 years older than when she took on this venture and needs help. Putting price stickers on merchandise when it arrives in the forest and placing it on the shelves is all that's needed and a great way to help support your sanctuary.

Call us and we'll be glad to talk with you.
This is YOUR forest, let's always keep it enchanted.

Volunteer Gardening

Volunteers can join Gardeners to care for the Forest's butterfly gardens for upkeep and to "deadhead" (remove dead flower heads from a plant) blooms so more energy goes to the next flowers. The spent blooms are collected for next year's seeding.

If interested, please contact Lois Harris at for the next workday.

Thanks for all your hard work...the gardens show how much you care!
