Have some Community Service to do?
We have opportunities to get community service hours daily!
7 days a week: Sunday - Saturday, 364 days a year!
Things to know:
-The start time for Community Service workers is 8 am!
(This is before the park opens, we have a doorbell at the front door, and there is always someone in the building that will let you in. Just let them know you are there for community service, and let them know it is your first day!)
-We ask each worker to be prepared to complete at least 4 hours of work in a day, although you may work up to 8.
(We have break and lunch schedules.)
-All workers are asked to report to the park by 8 am ready to work, in clothes that have no inappropriate images or vulgarity.
-Wear something you don't mind getting dirty.
-Closed-toed shoes are required.
-No tank tops or shorts, or any back packs.
-No electronic devices are permitted while not on break.
-If working during the winter please be prepared to be out in the cold temperatures, layer accordingly; jacket, gloves, etc.
(We are at the base of the mountain, and higher elevation than the Reno/Sparks Valley, which means our weather can be drastically different out here!)
-Bring sunscreen, sunglasses, and any food or drinks you will need for the day!
(We have snacks and drinks available for purchase in the gift shop!)
