California State Fair – Please consider volunteering at this event!

July 12, 2019 @ 8:00 am - July 28, 2019 @ 5:00 pm


Calling all forest lovers! Don’t miss out on your chance to Be Cool and Stay Cool at the California State Fair, July 12-28.
Sign up today to volunteer at the California Forest Center – The Forest Foundation’s one-acre urban forest inside Cal Expo – where we educate people on how sustainable forests protect the environment and grow the economy, and why healthy forests are critical in the prevention and recovery from catastrophic wildfires.
Help State Fair goers enjoy the cooler temperatures of the forest and learn about native plants and trees along our nature trail. We will have rescued forest wildlife, kids’ crafts, a portable sawmill demonstration, a chainsaw carver and free tree seedlings for Forest Center visitors.
As a volunteer, you will greet people, hand out tree seedlings, assist kids with fun crafts, and help folks learn about the benefits of our forests.
We provide you with free admission into the fair, a parking pass, and snacks and drinks during your shift.
Shifts are available from July 12-28, 2019 at the following times:
Monday – Thursday         EARLY 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. LATE 3:15 to 7:15 p.m.
Friday – Sunday               EARLY 10:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. LATE 2:45 to 7:15 p.m.
Don’t wait! Volunteer spots are filling up fast!
