Calling All Rainforest and Reptile Lovers

If you like to slow it down with a sloth, carouse with the kinkajous or congregate with the chameleons then you will be in love with the volunteer opportunities at this year’s Stanislaus County Fair.

The Stanislaus County Fair is seeking venturesome volunteers to assist at the new Rainforest Adventure interactive educational exhibit during this year’s Fair, July 31 – August 9, 2009.

New to this year’s Stanislaus County Fair is the Rainforest Adventure, an 8,000 square foot patch of rainforest. The new exhibit features critters that inhabit this rainforest, like toucans, anacondas, snapping turtles, and geckos. This exciting and educational adventure is sponsored by Sky Trek Aviation.

The exhibit will also feature 20 minute Rainforest Animal Shows, featuring a Capuchin monkey, and all of his rainforest bird and reptile friends. The Rainforest Animal Shows are sponsored by Monte Vista Small Animal Hospital.

Volunteers for the Rainforest Adventure will be trained to share knowledge of the rainforest and its inhabitants and will act as attendants stationed throughout the exhibit. Volunteers must be age 16 or over, must have their own transportation and must be able to stand for several hours at a time. In addition, volunteers must be available for pre-fair mandatory volunteer training.

Rainforest Adventure volunteer training is slated for Wednesday, July 29, at 7 p.m.

To sign-up as a volunteer, email or contact Diane Coryell at 668-1333 ext. 336 by no later than Friday, July 17 at 5 p.m.

  • paul on In what different materials do women’s activewear comes? "You may get a variety of fabrics for the best activewear for women online, including cotton, spandex, synthetic, bamboo fiber, and Gore-Tex. Each of these materials has distinctive properties that set them apart. Since polyester is incredibly light and comfortable to wear, we advise you to utilize it. Athletic clothing frequently uses polyester as a fabric. Shirts for activewear, sweatpants and jogging jackets usually contain polyester blends. Polyester often dries quickly, making it the perfect fabric for intense workouts."
  • PaulWatkins on How does a real estate agency work? "Hi Dans Andrew, I'm glad you have made the right decision because a real estate agency is a promising career. Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
