Break up the long lull of winter by volunteering at the Winter Fun Fest hosted by Dodge Nature Center and the South Robert Street Business Association. We have an array of roles to choose from. A majority of the positions are outdoors. Please dress for the weather. Volunteers will be provided hot drinks and treats.

Volunteers please park at our main office entrance located:
Dodge Nature Center, Main Office Entrance 1
365 Marie Ave. W
West St. Paul, MN 55118
From there, take the boardwalk trail across the pond to the red education building to check-in.

You must have a volunteer application turned in to sign up for this event. Do not sign up until you are sure you can commit to a position. Losing volunteers last minute puts Dodge in a real pickle the day of the event.

Date: 02/22/2020 (Sat.)

Time: 2:15pm - 6:30pm CST

Location: 1701 Charlton Street in West St. paul
