The Redwood Meadows Sustainability Committee is looking for volunteers to help celebrate Earth Day 2012 on Sunday, April 22. This will be the second annual event honouring Earth Day here in Redwood Meadows and it is shaping up to be another wonderful day loaded with activities, vendors, food, entertainment, etc. All volunteers will be entered in a draw to win some great prizes!
The Committee is looking for help in a number of areas listed below. Teens are encouraged to volunteer, particularly with projects and activities involving crafts and kids! Click HERE to view the Earth Day Poster. Click WIN to view the list of items to donate to Women In Need Calgary.

Café Food Service – 4 people (2 x 3 hour shifts) to work the concession serving food and beverages, cleaning up, etc.
Charity drop-off coordinator – one or two individuals to oversee the drop-off of goods destined for pick up by “Women in Need” charity in Calgary. Some heavy lifting required and ability to drive a truck with trailer.

The ART of recycling – 2 teens or adults to help ART coordinator with craft projects. If you love ART (and recycling) this one is for you!
Set-Up and Take-Down – 2 people to help get tables, chairs, etc. ready for vendors, presentations … and also to help put it all away at the end of the day.
Outdoor Maze Activity – another great opportunity for teens, especially if you love the outdoors! We need 2-4 people to help design, set up and oversee this activity.
Carbon Footprint Calculation – calling all computer geeks, we know you’re out there! This position involves manning a station helping people work with a simple computer program. Answering some basic questions may also be required.
