AdkAction’s Volunteer Program is Growing

Summer is our busiest volunteer season at AdkAction, and 2024 is looking like it will be our busiest yet! At our recent native plant potting day, over 40 AdkAction Volunteers showed up to the Uihlein Farm Greenhouse in Lake Placid to transplant over over 2,000 native plants into pots for our upcoming Adirondack Pollinator Festival and Plant Sale, in just a few hours time.

Upcoming volunteer opportunities include helping out at the Pollinator Festival on June 1 (you can sign up below), stuffing envelopes for our summer outreach mailing, representing AdkAction at an event near you, and assisting at our Keeseville Community Arts Festival July 19th and 20th. Make sure you are signed up for our volunteer alerts to hear about opportunities as they arise.

Will you be an AdkAction Ambassador at an event near you this summer?

AdkAction is often invited to set up a table at events to hand out information about our work with interested members of the community. This is a great way to engage more people in our work, but our small staff can’t always get to every event we’d like to cover – and that’s where AdkAction Ambassadors can step in to help! 

As an Ambassador, you can represent AdkAction at an event of your choosing in your part of the Adirondacks. Some of the places AdkAction has tabled before include the Saranac Lake Farmers Market, Adirondack Harvest Festival, Lake Placid Community Day, Old Forge Eco-Arts Festival, Mountain Lake PBS Kids Day, area Winter Carnivals, and other events around the region.

Depending on the event, Ambassadors may be handing out stickers, magnets, and other public outreach materials for our “Don’t Be Salty ADK” campaign to reduce road salt; or they may volunteer to lead a kids activity station to help area youth learn more about pollinators; or they may be handing out materials to help people enroll in our food programs.

Whatever your chosen event is, we will make sure you have everything you need for tabling, and will prepare you with a specialized orientation to make sure you feel comfortable representing AdkAction.

Please reach out to [email protected] or call 518-856-3233 during our office hours if you are interested in becoming an AdkAction Ambassador or have questions about the program. We’d be happy to talk to you about this opportunity to help out!
