Outreach is about starting conversations with others who share our appreciation for our forests, waterways, clean air, and quality of life. The list below is a sample of the events you can get involved in by:
- Setting up and breaking down outreach booths.
- Assisting with event operations such as directing traffic, collecting or distributing materials, or staffing the volunteer hospitality area.
- Staffing a booth and sharing information with visitors on TWG programs and services.
- Simply being a participant in the event, itself. Be sure to stop by the TWG booth to say Hi.
