LCAS Booth at the 15th Annual Good Earth Show, January 24-26, Volunteers Needed
Each year at the Good Earth Home, Garden & Living Show, hundreds of vendors with earth-friendly products gather to promote their wares and provide information on environmental and sustainability topics. Lane County Audubon Society’s booth will be part of the action again this year.
The show features more than 50 informative seminars and workshops, with LCAS speakers contributing to the offerings. Specific topics and times for the seminars will be announced in the coming weeks. You’ll be able to find our booth in the Good Gardening area of the show. Stop by to tell us about your bird sightings and get answers to your questions about our local birds and their habitats.
If you’re interested in helping staff the booth for an hour or two during the show, contact Ron Renchler at christyandron2
@gmail.com. Orientation and training will be provided, and you’ll be paired with an experienced booth staffer if it’s your first time.
The event is held at the Lane Events Center, 796 West 13th Avenue, in Eugene. It runs from 5-9 pm Friday, January 24, and continues 10 am-5 pm Saturday and Sunday.
Two Booth Volunteers Needed— (1) Setup and (2) Staffing Scheduler
If you’d like to help Lane Audubon in a big way but don’t have a lot of time available, here are a couple of ways to get involved. We need a person to take over the Lane Audubon booth setup and takedown, as well as someone to coordinate the scheduling of booth staffers.
Booth setup/takedown involves delivering and erecting our portable booth, tables, and display materials at event and festival sites, then dismantling them after the event is over. Setup and takedown require only an hour or two of your time, usually on a Saturday morning and early Sunday evening, a few times a year. If you enjoy being outdoors in the morning and doing a little light physical activity (nothing too strenuous), this could be the spot for you. Access to a larger vehicle (a van or pickup) is useful but not required.
If you’re more indoorsy and have some basic computer and organizational skills, such as sending e-mail messages and putting together staffing schedules, you could help Lane Audubon by sending out announcements alerting our volunteers to booth staffing opportunities. After volunteers respond, you put together staffing schedules and distribute them by e-mail to volunteers. This work usually takes an hour or two and can be done in your own home a couple of weeks before booth events are scheduled.
Orientation and training for these volunteer positions will be provided. It can be rewarding to work behind the scenes to help Lane Audubon spread the word about the importance of birds and their habitats. If you’d like to learn more about either of these positions, please call Ron Renchler at 541.345.0834 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
