Conway EcoFest organizers are seeking individual and group volunteers for a work day from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 24. The Drop-In work day will be held at the McGee Sports Center, 3800 College Ave.
Conway EcoFest is an interactive festival that makes learning about our connections to our environment exciting for all ages. The theme for the Fifth annual Conway EcoFest is Cultivating Curiosity, and with your help it can be an even more exciting event.
Organizers hope to accomplish many tasks at this work day, in order to create this fun learning environment for everyone involved. This year, there are a lot of new, exciting experiments, as well as interactive exhibits and activities for the whole family.
Some of the tasks and prep-work needed include the following:
• Painting, constructing and updating area and section signs
• Building sturdy wood frames for murals
• Assembling kite kits
Refreshments will be served.
Group leaders (schools, churches, civic groups, businesses, etc.) and the general public can come help for a few hours, or learn about volunteer opportunities for the day of the event.
Many volunteer opportunities are still available prior to event, as well as on the day of the festival. Volunteers are encouraged to sign up through the website at www.conwayecofest.com/application-center, as soon as possible to ensure a large enough volunteer pool. Exhibitor and sponsorships are also available.
For more information, please contact organizers through Facebook, Twitter, the website, or call Ashley at 548-2957.
