Important Day Of Info
- The event will take place RAIN or SHINE!
- Wild Florida is located at 3301 Lake Cypress Rd. Kenansville, FL 34739
- Check your GPS prior to departure to allow for ample travel time (if you are a part of the 2nd shift, you may get caught in our VIP Family traffic closer to Wild Florida, so plan to arrive early)
- When you arrive follow the signs to the entrance of the safari and you will be directed to the volunteer parking area – View Map Here.
- Volunteer parking is limited. Please carpool if possible.
- Once you park, please check in with Kari at the volunteer tent. You will receive your t-shirt and assignment. (If you would like to pick up your t-shirt from our office on Thursday, please call us 407-857-8224)
- The weather is calling for scattered thunderstorms on both Friday and Saturday. The good news is, the animals LOVE the rain! The bad news is, we are going to have a bad hair day. 🙂 Please bring personal rain gear – i.e. poncho, umbrella, etc.
- Even though it may be cloudy, you can still get sunburned! A hat will protect from rain and ultraviolet rays. We will have a limited supply of sunscreen available but please bring a small stash.
- When your shift is over, we invite you to take a Safari ride.
- If you need community service hours, please make sure to have your form signed at the end of your shift.
REMEMBER: Even though the state is reopening, please practice good social distancing with our VIP families. Some of our VIPs are high risk, so please bring a mask to wear for interacting with our VIP families.
If An Emergency Arises and you are not able to fulfill your commitment, please email us or call our office at 407-857-8224. If after 5 pm on Thursday, please text 407-900-1054.
