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 3rd Annual Life Outside Festival.

This is a great opportunity for groups and individuals who are age 18 and older. Thanks in advance for helping us deliver an amazing day to our community!

Life Outside - General Volunteers 2018

Event Chair: Emma Klues

DETAILS:

Life Outside is an annual free festival of the outdoors on June 9, 2018, 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. 


You can help with setup from 7-10am (5 people), cleanup from 3-6pm (5 people) and/or any of the following tasks, all of which are split into shifts of 9:15 am - 1:15 pm and 12:45-4:45 pm 

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


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.  

Roaming registrars means you will be doing the duties of registration on the fly! Armed with an iPad and supplies, you can find people who haven't yet checked in, answer questions, etc.

Water Activity Registration - sign people up for their turn at the water activities (taking their name and number for a text-waiting app if there's a line), get waivers signed, etc!

Tree Climbing - help people get signed up to climb, help to assign gloves and harnesses and then the instructors take it from there.

Shuttle Stop Hosts - be stationed NOT at the festival but actually around the region at major transit centers, where we are running free bus shuttles to the festival. You'll always be with another volunteer or staff member. 

Shuttle Captain - Ride that shuttle bus and make sure people know how/when to get back on!

Shuttle Host @ Park - Staff the dropoff and pickup station at the festival. 

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)

Parking - Who doesn't love a good day directing cars so people can easily get to this fun festival? These shifts are shorter so you can go enjoy the festivities yourself.
