Volunteers Needed for the 7th Annual Outdoor Family Fun Day
Tuesday, 15 March 2016 08:30
If you love to help kids enjoy the outdoors, the Niobrara National Scenic River needs your assistance. The 7th annual Outdoor Family Fun Day will be held at Smith Falls State Park on Saturday, April 23rd.
This family-focused event gives children and families the opportunity to experience hands-on activities ranging from archery to a GPS course to canoeing. Volunteers are needed to help pull off the event.
The canoeing portion needs the most volunteers, but people are also needed to help with registration and to assist presenters. Canoeing volunteers will paddle a canoe filled with potentially inexperienced youth on multiple short canoe trips throughout the day. Each trip will be led by NPS staff.
Volunteers must love working with children and be able to control a two-person canoe on their own. Registration and general volunteers should have a ready smile.
Interested individuals are asked to call the Niobrara National Scenic River at 402-376-1901. All volunteers are required to fill out a volunteer form.
Lunch and, if necessary, a day pass for Smith Falls State Park will be provided.
The Niobrara NSR is proud to offer this event in partnership with the Niobrara Council, the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, the Northern Prairies Land Trust, the Nebraska Forest Service, the Nebraska Master Naturalists, and our many volunteers.
