Service Project: New Orleans City Park
Join other RBMS members in giving back to New Orleans by assisting New Orleans City Park – one of the nation’s oldest urban parks (http://neworleanscitypark.com/) – with an afternoon of habitat restoration and maintenance. Activities will be based on the organization’s needs at the time, but will definitely involve plenty of fresh air! All tools, gloves, and instruction will be provided, but you will want to wear long pants and closed-toed shoes and bring a water bottle along with you to fill up. Come do some gardening for a good cause following a productive conference!
Maximum of 20 volunteers. Sign up on this online form or at the registration desk before noon on Thursday June 21st. We will leave from the hotel lobby at 1:30pm to make it to the volunteer location by 2pm with an estimated end time of 4:30pm. Make sure to eat lunch before we head out!
