Volunteer Opportunities in July

Dear Friends and Volunteers of the MacKenzie Center,

We have four unique volunteer opportunities coming up at the MacKenzie Center.

  1. This coming Sunday, July 9th we will be having An Afternoon with Wildlife event from 1pm-3pm. Visitors will have the chance to chat with wildlife staff about the animals, touch furs and skulls, and participate in some wildlife related crafts.  We are looking for a few volunteers to work some tables and activities. If you are interested in volunteering please contact Hayley at Hayley.Parsons@wisconsin.gov. We would need volunteers from about 12:30pm-3:00pm.
  2. For our next volunteer opportunity we are looking for volunteers who love to fish. During the week of July 17th-20th the MacKenzie Center is running an Outdoor Skills Day Camp for 4th-6th graders. On Tuesday July 18th, we will be teaching the kids how to fish and could use some volunteers from 12:15pm-2:15pm when we head to Lake Wisconsin to test out their skills. If you are interested in volunteering please contact Hayley at Hayley.Parsons@wisconsin.gov.
  3. On July 22nd, the Friends of MacKenzie is hosting a 3D Archery Competition. We are looking for volunteers to work in the food booth from 10am-2pm, registration booth from 8:00am-1:00pm, and youth activities from 9:30am-1:00pm. The youth activities will be an archery clinic, shed hunt, aerial archery, and arts and crafts. If interested in volunteering please contact Jason Murray and Jason.Murray@wiscon.gov.
  4. Lastly we are looking for a volunteer or two to help us recycle a metal pile we have at the MacKenzie Center. It will need to be delivered to a recycling center in Portage . If interested please contact Steven Kaylor at (608) 635-5083.
