Volunteers Needed for Nature Center’s July 25 Wild 5K Run/Walk

Jamestown, NY – With hundreds of runners and walkers converging for the Wild 5K Run/Walk, the Audubon Nature Center needs dozens of volunteers on Saturday, July 25, 2015.

The 8-8:45 a.m. registration and 9 a.m. start time mean volunteers will be required as early as 7:30 a.m. to help with parking through to after-race clean-up in the early afternoon.

Folks will be needed to staff the water station and serve as trail cheerleaders/direction pointers from before the start to the end of the race. Other assignments include staffing the registration, refreshment and award tables, and helping at the finish line.

The Wild 5K is open to runners and walkers of all ages and will raise money to support the on-going efforts to protect the Nature Center’s more than 600 acres of unique habitat. Prizes will be awarded to the first three overall male and female finishers in the run category, and age group awards will be given to the top three finishers in each division for both runners and walkers. All participants who register before July 16 will receive event t-shirts.

Businesses and individuals are invited to join Zahm & Matson and Road I.D. as event sponsors by making financial or in-kind contributions or donating gift certificates.

To volunteer for the Wild 5K, call (716) 569-2345 or visit www.wild5k.wordpress.com/volunteer. Full details for the event are at www.wild5k.wordpress.com.

The Audubon Nature Center is at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, New York, and Warren, Pennsylvania. Hours for the Nature Center building and Blue Heron Gift Shop are 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday-Saturday and Sundays 1-4:30 p.m. The arboretum, gardens, more than five miles of trails, and Liberty, the non-releasable Bald Eagle, in her outdoor exhibit are open dawn to dusk daily.
