Volunteer at Life Outside!

Be part of the funnest festival in town!

Great Rivers Greenway needs your help. We are looking for people who love living life outside to help us celebrate all things outdoors in the St. Louis region at our 4th Annual Life Outside Festival.

This is a great opportunity for groups and individuals who are age 12 and older. Several roles are perfect to bring younger kids to tag along, and some roles are reserved for those who are 18 and older. Read on for those notes. Thanks in advance for helping us deliver an amazing day to our community!

Life Outside - General Volunteers 2019

Event Chair: Emma Klues

DETAILS:

Life Outside is an annual free festival of the outdoors on June 8, 2019, 10 am - 4 pm. Park visitors will be able to see, try, learn and do life outside. There is something for everyone!

Location: Creve Coeur Lake Memorial Park, Sailboat Cove, 13725 Marine Ave, Creve Coeur, MO 63146 (check in at the main shelter, you'll sign a waiver and get a nametag)
Description of event: www.LiveLifeOutside.org

Parking directions: Free parking on-site. Follow directions of St. Louis County park rangers.

Inclement weather: Communicate with Emma Klues, cell ph# 217-649-4695, in the event of inclement weather conditions. We will carry on in rain, thunder/lightning may mean pauses in activities. 

All training for any task will be provided on site as you arrive. Email instructions will also be sent ahead of time. Thank you!


There are three ways to help - behind-the-scenes (like setup or cleanup), the free shuttle, or on-site at the festival. See below for descriptions:

Behind the Scenes: setup from 7-10am, cleanup from 3-6pm or unloading back at the office 6-8pm. Ages 12+ are welcome here.

Free Shuttle: Two jobs here:
1) Sit in pairs (bring a friend or a kiddo, each station has two people, but please have an aged 18+ person accompanying a minor) at a public transit station to be the welcome greeter for those gathering to catch the free shuttle buses to Life Outside (shift is either 8:30am-12pm or 11:30am to 3pm) 
2) Ride the actual buses, helping to navigate and get people registered while on the bus (shifts are 9am to 1:15pm or 12:45pm to 4:45pm) This is a 1-person task for an 18+ individual.

Festival Work: The rest of the following tasks are split into shifts of 9:15 am - 1:15 pm and 12:45-4:45 pm 

 

We need multiple volunteers per shift for each of the following roles:

Registration - you will be at the main tent(s), checking people in, getting them to fill out a waiver and put on a wristband, and handing out maps. Ages 18+ please.

Activity Registration - sign people up for their turn at an activity (taking their name and number for a text-waiting app if there's a line), get waivers signed, etc! Ages 18+ please.

Lounge Lizard - Hang out at the oasis spots around the festival offering people shade, seating, sunscreen, water and info about the festival co-hosts, Great Rivers Greenway and Terrain Magazine! (no prior knowledge needed) Any age welcome here, so long as one of the people at each station is 18+!

Photo Booth - Get people excited to take their picture on the greenway! Monitor this self-serve photo booth and encourage people to post and tag us. Any age welcome here, so long as one of the people at each station is 18+!
