Volunteers Needed!

Lots of volunteers are needed for a big event like the Halloween Hike on Friday & Saturday, October 17 & 18. If you love the spotlight we can give you a part as one of the crazy characters, or we have jobs for trail guides, trail maintenance, pumpkin carving, and other behind-the-scenes duties. Wed love to have you help on one or both nights. Contact Michelle, (563) 264-5922 or mberns@co.muscatine.ia.us, if you are interested in volunteering.
