    Come help us make the 1 Voice Academy an even better place for the kids.  We'll be doing a spring landscaping clean-up, some light painting and power washing. 

    Anyone who gets there on time (9am) will get one extra volunteer hour (so 4 hours instead of 3)!  

    Wear clothes that are OK to get dirty/paint-splattered and bring work gloves, comfortable shoes, water, etc..    If you have some landscaping tools like rakes and or shovels please bring them.  And if you have/can bring a power-washer, that would be great!

    For anyone who hasn't heard about the Academy, here's a short news clip on it.

    MEMBERS ONLY -  Spring service day at Big Cat Rescue!

    Activities usually include cleaning up or preparing a new habitat.  That means a lot of landscaping  and painting, so wear clothes you are OK getting dirty.  Closed-toe shoes (hiking boots are even better if you  have them) are a must.  Don't forget to bring water, bug spray, sunscreen, etc.   




    This event is capped at 10 participants per Big Cat Rescue's group policy.

    The facility has been closed to visitors in the aftermath of the Tiger King controversy and COVID, so there are some rules for everyone to be aware of.

    • All members must provide proof of COVID vaccination.  
    • Bring a mask - if you are working within 6 feet of a cat, you'll need to wear it.
    • All members must be at least 18 years of age
    • All members must sign a hold harmless release form before arriving on property, and provide proof of ID on arrival.  See the link above to e-sign the waiver.
    • All members must always stay with their group while on property and the group must always be supervised by a Big Cat Volunteer.  If for any reason a member needs to leave early, they will be escorted back to the parking lot by a BCR volunteer

    Volunteer Opportunity:

    Ahoy Nauti Mates!

    It's time once again for the annual YMKN trip to Key West for Hemingway Days. 

    To keep things simple and allow for maximum flexibility, the Krewe does not manage this event, i.e., you need to make your own travel arrangements and lodging reservations. Typically, whoever goes will stay in touch via text or Facebook Messenger.

    Where to Stay (or try to get close by):

    Rose Lane Villas and Old Towne Manor

    Options for travel to Key West:

    This part is up to you depending on your preference and budget.  You can drive, fly or take the ferry from Fort Myers.

    Flights: From TPA, United and Silver have flights on the 20th and 23rd.  From PIE, Allegiant offers flights, but their schedule is limited so you'd have to fly on the 21st and 24th.

    Ferry:  There is a ferry from Fort Myers to Key West almost every day.

About us

Ye Mystic Krewe of the Nautilus is a 501c3 organization dedicated to having fun while promoting philanthropy, environmental awareness and conservation of our beautiful Tampa Bay Area.  We do this through participation in the Gasparilla parades and related events, as well as a variety of hands-on activities with our charitable partners. 

Our mission is to promote Florida environmental awareness and conservation through friendly partnerships, education, charity sponsorship and community service. We volunteer and participate in various clean-up and conservation projects in the Tampa Bay area.  We also raise funds for the 1 Voice Foundation in order to enhance current programs for children & families fighting pediatric cancer.
