Consider volunteering your time to help South Carolina’s students know the importance of forests and the forest industry to their everyday lives.
There will be three events this fall:
Piedmont Forestry Center (Tamassee)-September 20-23
Harbison State Forest (Columbia)-October 10-14
Hobcaw Barony Discovery Center (Georgetown)-November 15-18
To conduct these programs they need approximately 30 volunteers each day to serve as guides, instructors, and helpers. Each volunteer is given a t-shirt, lunch, and the satisfaction that they have helped provide the youth of our state an important pro-forestry experience.
To sign up, first visit the WMFF instructors’ web site at http://www.state.sc.us/forest/woodmagic.htm to see what days and positions are available (this is updated weekly). You can also find lesson plans, driving directions, and other information at this site. Then contact Matt Schnabel, Assistand WMFF Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 803-896-8892 to let him know for which days and positions you would like to volunteer. (Please note the above website is not where you sign up, but where you see what volunteer slots are still needing to be filled.
