Wild Earth Camp - Volunteer opportunities for 2008
Volunteers are needed!

Outreach – email, web, benefits, fundraising, posters

Logistics – transportation, food, donations, gear

Camp support
– kitchen, first aid, security, set up, take down, clean up, fire safety.

Some of the 2007 crew will be joining us again, and we have openings for a dozen or more new volunteers. Wild Earth volunteers get valuable experience, free admission to all Wild Earth events, free transportation to the camp(s), and a letter of recommendation from the organizers. Plus, they gain strategies, skills and contacts for environmental justice that will last a lifetime.

Thanks to all our supporters! Please pass this message on to others.
