About

Earth Day is a big day for us on the Anne Springs Close Greenway, and we need our volunteers to help make it a success! Over 3,000 guests will visit the Greenway on Earth Day and we need all hands on deck.

Here are all available positions on Earth Day:

1. PARKING ATTENDANT: Help us greet our guests and be the face of the Greenway as folks come in to Earth Day! Parking attendants will help direct cars to utilize the space in our parking areas.

a. Each shift requires at least three volunteers; you will also have staff helping as well. You can sign up for multiple shifts if you'd like!

b. SHIFTS: 7:00am-10:00am (help exhibitors as well as guests), 10:00am-12:30pm, 12:30pm-2:30pm

2. KIDS ZONE: Love working with kids? Come help us out in the Kids Zone! All our afterschool FLYERS sites will be there, as well as our preschool. Each site will have a fun, hands-on activity focused around recycling and reusing items in a creative way! Help with a craft, interact with families and help us tell the Greenway's story!

a. SHIFTS: 10:00am-12:00pm, 12:00pm-2:00pm

3. CREEK CROSSERS: One of the most interesting volunteer positions on Earth Day. You will need some waders (which we can provide, let us know!)or water shoes of your choice. We will have wagon rides coming down to the creek. This is a popular activity for families, but crossing the swinging bridge with a stroller can be difficult. You'll be there to help families across by carrying the stroller (not their child!) across the creek for them. You will also help ensure the safety of the children who play in the creek (no rock throwing, that kind of thing!)

a. SHIFTS: 10:00am-12:00pm, 12:00pm-2:00pm

4. LEAD-LINE HORSE RIDES: One of the most popular activities we have at Earth Day! Help young children ride a horse for the first time or the hundredth. Volunteers will assist by leading horses, walking alongside children on horseback and by helping put helmets on children.

a. SHIFTS: 10:00am-12:00pm, 12:00pm-2:00pm

5. DRINK SALES: Help raise money for the Greenway by selling our thirsty guests cold sodas and water. (no alcohol served on Earth Day) We'll need helping selling drinks out of the Coke Trailer all day. Bonus is that you'll get a free drink while you work!

a. SHIFTS: 10:00am-12:00pm, 12:00pm-2:00pm

6. AMPITHEATER VOLUNTEERS: We will have a lot of fun activities happening around the Comporium Amphitheater and we'll need help making sure things go smoothly. Help us with the opening ceremony, the Recycled Runway Competition, the concert or all three!

a. SHIFTS: 9:30am-12:00pm, 12:00pm-3:00pm
