Volunteer with Monarchs on the Move at the at the free festival and giant puppet show ILLUMINATED WATERS this Saturday! MotM will setup a butterfly garden for visitors to walk through and need volunteers to help guard the entrance and exit for any escapees. Volunteers will also answer questions (a fact sheet will be provided) and direct attendees around the tent.
The festival includes art, roving performances, music, food trucks and will end with StionLion’s annual giant puppet play, which starts at 8 pm. Volunteers are welcome to stay and watch the show once we finish our shift. This is a family friendly event and children are welcome to volunteer as long as they are with an adult.
Directions: Theis Park is South of the Nelson-Atkins Museum across Emanuel Cleaver II Blvd and the Amphitheatre is at the South end near Brush Creek. The address listed is for the Kauffman Memorial Garden, park in that lot if there is space or on the East side of Rockhill at the Kauffman Foundation. You’ll need to find the Monarchs on the Move tent, call Selena at 816-582-7857 if you have trouble finding us.
