Volunteers needed to mentor youth in outdoor recreation activities at U.P. State Fair

If you’re looking for a volunteer opportunity to help a young person experience outdoor recreation – helping instill in them a sense of Michigan’ great natural resources heritage and traditions – then the DNR is looking for you.

Youth mentors are needed to help staff the DNR’ Pocket Park in Escanaba during the Aug. 13-19 week of the Upper Peninsula State Fair. Activities volunteers assist with include helping kids catch and release bluegills in the U.P.-shaped pond or shoot a pellet gun or bow and arrow, staffing the fire tower or greeting visitors.

Volunteer training for all activities – as well as a meal, a T-shirt and a small gift – will be provided. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old (unless under special pre-approved circumstances) and pass a background check.

Businesses and organizations, or clubs and groups, may wish to sponsor shifts during the fair by having their employees or members volunteer as a group. Recognition of the group or business will be prominently displayed and announced.

Anyone interested in volunteering should contact Kristi Dahlstrom at 906-226-1331 or Jo Ann Alexander at 906-789-8200.
