When you volunteer for the pond tour, you'll pull a four-hour shift at one the ponds on the tour, checking wristbands and handing out programs. In return, you get to go on the tour for free, get a free tour t-shirt, and get to come to the SPLASH! Party, held the weekend before the tour.
You do not have to be a Austin Pond Society member to volunteer.
This year, we have t-shirts in men's sizes S-XXXL, and tank tops in women's sizes S-XXL. You can order extra shirts for $10 each. You can pay for the extra shirts when you pick them up. Traditionally, we deliver both the free and extra shirts at the SPLASH! party. The SPLASH! party is on June 1 this year.
The tour is June 8th and 9th. North ponds are on Saturday, and South/Central ponds on Sunday. The shifts are 8:30 am - 1:00 pm and 12:30 to 5:00 pm. There's also a night shift Saturday night, 7:30 to 10:30 pm.
