Volunteer Opportunity - Earth Day at Rotary Botanical Gardens

RPMGA will be hosting a space at Rotary Botanical Gardens Earth Day Celebration, "Earth Day Around the World."  The event runs from 10 am to 3 pm.on Saturday, April 22.

We'll be making pollinator houses all day long.  We'll have directions to give away on how to make pollinator houses. We'll give away a handout called Pollinators 101.  We will give away herb seeds and information on the importance of pollinators. We'll stamp hand with pictures of pollinators.  We're bringing a diorama that will show the process of composting.

We'll be outside, under a tent.

We're looking for volunteers to help with set-up the morning of the event, and tear-down at the end, at least 2 each.  We also need shift volunteers.  We'll be breaking the day into two 2 1/2 hour shifts, and we'll need 2 volunteers for each shift.  Set-up will be as early at 7 am the morning of the event.  Tear-down will begin a soon as the event closes at 3 pm.

Master Gardener Volunteers will earn one (1) Continuing Education Units (CEUs) per hour for participation.

Contact Mary Kay Thompson at 608-322-4800 if you wish to volunteer.  We need your help!!  Thanks!!
