St. Augustine Road Fish Management Area contains two fishing lakes that are operated jointly by the City of Jacksonville and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). The larger lake drains into New Rose Creek, which connects directly to the St. Johns River. A hidden gem for nature lovers, it is usually empty of everyone except birds. Migrating birds and year-round residents love the lake and surrounding woodlands; the park is an eBird Hotspot where over 110 species have been reported. Join us to clean up this beautiful area and help keep trash from harming the wildlife we love!

We'll supply bags, latex gloves, and grabbers - we just need YOU and your help! Please wear close-toed shoes or boots (for your safety, NO sandals or flip-flops), and clothes that can get dirty.

What to bring:
• Water
• Sunglasses
• A hat
• Sunscreen/bug spray
• Heavy-duty gloves if you have them, and
• a signed waiver form if you are under 18. You may download and bring your completed form with you to the cleanup.

Please sign up so we'll know how many to expect. Hope to see you there!
