Project R.O.A.R. members are stationed one member per Florida Park Service district, working closely with the Park Program Development Specialist. These members spend the year developing interpretive materials, hosting events at parks within their district, and participating in tabling opportunities. Project R.O.A.R. members are the educators for environmental stewardship, and help foster the service related mindset. Due to the impact of Covid-19, many of these activities may be implemented through virtual platforms, and members will follow safety procedures when in public areas as set by the Department of Environmental Protection.
Once applications are reviewed, potential members will have the opportunity to choose which district they are interested in. Site supervisors at the district itself are responsible for conducting interviews.
