Spring Into Volunteer Opportunities With the EarthWays Center

posted on

Join EarthWays Center as a volunteer supporting sustainability work in the community! We have a number of opportunities this spring for you to get involved. Contact Maggie McCoy at mmccoy@mobot.org to sign up.

Zero Waste Ambassadors

Where is away? What is compost? What happens at a MRF? Ever ask yourself these questions? Do you know the answers? Interested in learning more about waste and how we can help the environment by practicing our 3R's at all times - even during big events and festivals?

Join staff from the EarthWays Center of the Missouri Botanical Garden to learn how to be the best zero-waste ambassador you can be! Get a basic understanding of waste - including an overview of landfills, recycling centers, and composting operations, gain experience talking to others about waste, and so much more. The next training opportunity will be held virtually on Tuesday, May 3 from 6 to 7 p.m. To register for the training, contact Maggie McCoy at mmccoy@mobot.org or register here.

Volunteer as a Zero Waste Ambassador at Chinese Culture Days on May 21 or 22. Not only will you helping the Garden divert waste, but you will be able to attend the events for free before or after your shift! Register for a volunteer shift at http://www.mobot.org/volunteer.
