Volunteer Opportunity: CAS Astronomy Day @ California Academy of Sciences
Apr 29 all-day

The California Academy of Sciences is looking for daytime help with Astronomy Day. In addition to volunteers willing to help out, SFAA also needs a coordinator for the event. A coordinator needs to make a firm commitment to attending the event and will need to do some advance planning and coordination with Academy staff and other SFAA volunteers. If you’re interested in helping, either as a coordinator or as a volunteer, please send an email to Anthony Barriero.
