Fire Fest needs Volunteers at the Carlton

Coming up on January 31st, a free evening of prescribed burn demos, water drops from helicopters, nature walks, speakers, games for kids, all at Fire Fest 2015.

Nancy Edmonson, an Environmental Specialist, is looking for several good volunteers for this event at the Carlton Reserve:

She writes:

“I thought it necessary to make the plea now, for volunteers to assist at our Fire Fest 2015.

It occurs on Saturday, Jan. 31, 2015, from 10 – 3, but we will need volunteers to help with the set up the day before as well as some to arrive early on Saturday to direct staff and other participants to the appropriate parking.


  • 12 volunteers needed on Saturday, Jan. 31, 2015 to assist with parking:
  • 3 needed to arrive early (7:30ish).
  • 9 to arrive at 9 AM (for briefing and positioning)


“I could use 2 or 3 volunteers the day before (Friday, January 30, 2015) to install signs and set up the parking lots. Either the morning or afternoon would be workable. I can adjust my time to meet with the volunteers’ availability on Friday.”
