Concerts at Marymoor fans: Volunteer with Parks recycling crew and see shows free
The popular summer concert series at King County’s Marymoor Park is under way with a great artists’ lineup, including the upcoming “Last Summer on Earth” tour this Friday, Aug. 3, featuring the Barenaked Ladies, Blues Traveler, Cracker and Big Head Todd & the Monsters.
See other shows in the summer concert series for free, just by lending a hand as part of the Marymoor recycling/composting volunteer crew – a volunteer program that helps promote recycling and waste reduction among concertgoers.
Joining the crew is a great opportunity to do some good by teaching others how to sort their recyclable and compostable materials, keeping the concert venue free of litter and supporting King County Parks’ ongoing commitment to address the environmental impacts of its programs.
Volunteer crew members help keep more than half of the waste generated at the shows out of the landfill while also receiving free entry and parking to the shows which they volunteer.
Both individual and groups of volunteers are invited to participate with on-site training provided. Volunteers must be 18 years-of-age or older and commit to volunteering a four-hour shift.
Scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis - interested volunteers are encouraged to sign up and submit their concert requests right away.
Volunteer openings are available at the following concerts:
Friday, Aug. 10 Dead Can Dance
Saturday, Aug. 25 The End 107.7 Summer Camp ’12
Wednesday, Sept. 5 Unity Tour 2012
Thursday, Sept. 6 Silversun Pickups
Friday, Sept. 7 My Morning Jacket and Shabazz Palaces
Saturday, Sept. 15 Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros
