Volunteers get into event free to enjoy night sky and star tour. We will provide refreshments, headlamps, parking pass, and kayaks if you want to take an evening paddle. 

Headcount needed: Four volunteers

Roles and Expectations:

1 – Help Launch Kayaks.

2 – Kayak with participants as a “helper”.

3 – Help load kayaks when twilight paddle is complete.

4 – Help participants set up their ground space, maybe move a few chairs, be chaperones with headlamps(that we provide) so that people don’t trip on rocks.

5 – Enjoy the night sky and the star tour!

To register as a volunteer please fill out a Volunteer Sign Up Form or email

Extra bonus if you already have your own kayak because it will be needed and useful to help with water operations and delegating when the event launches into water. Not a deal breaker if you dont have one! Sign up and we'll see you out there.
