The annual Bell Fest is coming up on Saturday, March 14 at Devil’s Fork State Park in Oconee County. Our Upstate SCNPS chapter will have an outreach table at the Fest and we need volunteers to work at the table. This is a great event with lots of folks coming out to see the beautiful mountain wildflower, the Oconee Bell (a.k.a. Shortia glalacifolia).
Volunteers for the NPS table will talk to visitors about NPS activities and projects, answer questions, tell them about the spring plant sale, and sell a few native plants from our greenhouse. We need at least two people for each shift. Is easy and fun!
The shifts are:
9am to 11 (includes set-up of the canopy, tables and display) Needed: two volunteers or more
11 am to 1pm Needed: one more volunteer
1pm to 3:30 pm (includes take down of canopy, displays, and tables.) Needed: two volunteers or more
This is a great opportunity to introduce new people to our organization. The Fest runs from 10am to 3pm.To volunteer or for more information, email coordinator Judy Seeley at < [email protected]> or call 864-855-6396.
Before or after your shift, you can go down the trail to see the Bells and participate in the many other activities of the day.
