Volunteer Opportunity at Phil Hardberger Park Conservancy

  

“Phil Hardberger Park has received wonderful gifts of time, skill, supplies and labor from Boy Scout Troops and individuals working on their Eagle Scout Awards. We are delighted to have scouts in the park all the time. They have my thanks for the work they do to make this the best park in Texas!"  ~ Phil Hardberger, Phil Hardberger Park Conservancy President and Former Mayor of San Antonio.

 

Overview:

Calling All Boy Scout Troops to volunteer to take photos and harvest emails from HAPPY park visitors on five Saturdays in April 2016.    

Some scouts will be equipped with park-owned iPads and will offer to take photos of park users with their dogs or with life-sized cardboard cutouts of Phil Hardberger!  Those photographed will be asked for permission to post their photos in the Phil Hardberger Park Conservancy (PHPC) e-newsletter and on the PHPC Facebook page and will be asked for their email addresses.  Those who do not wish to be photographed will also be asked whether they would like to keep up with all the exciting park news by getting the PHPC e-newsletter.  Anyone who wants to receive the newsletter will be given a 3x5 card and a sharpie and asked to PRINT CLEARLY their email address (no names needed).  Scout leaders should be mindful of the nature of the nature of the task--asking for emails and taking photos may be more suitable for older scouts.  A scout representative will be asked to collect the cards for each Saturday.  The PHPC staff will arrange with the scout leader to pick up the cards.
