12:00 p.m. – Coordinators to rotate volunteers, and train incoming person to the job they are filling,  so that “all-day” volunteers can take a rest break, have a quick lunch, and visit the vendors, exhibitors, and speakers.  “Half-day” volunteers will also be given personal comfort breaks

4:00-5:00 – Break-down:  Help fold tables, chairs and pop-ups, pack up game area, clean up craft area, assist in plant nursery, and pick up trash (of which there shouldn’t be any because it’s Earth Day, right?!)

Please bring any paperwork required to document your hours, and to be signed by Sierra Club.  Also bring your own refillable drinking-water bottle, and personal comfort items such as, sunscreen, hat, folding chair, snacks, sack lunch, etc.  Food and beverages are also available for purchase at various businesses on site.

I will have an area set up in the shade across from the garden, where volunteers can keep their personal belongings, and take breaks.  Volunteers are kindly asked to remain at Vail Headquarters until they are picked up by their adult.
