Volunteers Needed for Teacher Nature Camp
Plans are under way for the second Birmingham Audubon Nature Camp for Teachers to be held June 10-12, 2013. The committee will be looking for volunteers to help with:
∙ Hospitality: Information packets for teachers, concierge, registration, signs
∙ Food: Maintaining the snack area, coordinating sustainable dinnerware, kitchen and clean-up
∙ Academic: Coordinating faculty and students, planning and managing on site Library, preparing checklists (birds, wildflowers, trees)
There are activities that also need coordination before hand and do not require volunteers to travel to the camp.
