The Oregon Zoo has a new venue for regional conservation education! Their new Education Center is due to open in March and is designed to provide visitors with multimedia opportunities to learn about nature and conservation. The Zoo and US Fish and Wildlife Service invites Master Recyclers to set up information booths with the variety of kits and topics.
We are seeking a small team of 2-3 people who would take the responsibility to lead the Master Recycler participation. You would commit to lead the effort of organizing a series of booths this spring and summer. You will decide how many times you would like to set up the booth, which topics you want to cover and check out the kits. You would also decide who will send in volunteer opportunities for the Master Recycler Calendar and take in sign-ups and coordinate shifts.
If you would like to just volunteer and not coordinate, email Lauren at the Master Recycler program address (below) and your info will be passed on to the Master Recyclers who are coordinating.
The first event is opening weekend.
We are looking to have a nice busy first weekend (March 4 & 5) at the center, with lots of our partners celebrating the Grand Opening. We are giving away a ton of passes to local community based organizations to come to the center that weekend, so it should be a diverse range of guests in attendance. If you are interested, please let me know which day/times you (or your staff/volunteers) would be available.
