Invitation to Present/Volunteer at Arbor Day
Whether you are looking for volunteer hours, or you just want to give back to your community, Arbor Day is the place to do it! Each year we invite 48 classes of 2nd and 3rd graders from the Mid-Michigan area to attend an all day field trip learning about trees, forests, nature, and the like. Presenters are needed to give a 25-minute presentation four times in the morning, take a break for lunch (provided for you!) and then resume and give the same presentation to four new classes for the afternoon rotation. If you want to present, but don't have a topic, contact the MADA Coordinator and we can give you ideas and/or pre-made programs! Volunteers are needed to help direct traffic, carrying student lunches to the pavilion, manage the check-in stations, monitor the noon celebration, and general set up and tear down. Please fill out a form below and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org to save your spot!
