Storyteller

 

Storyteller

If you like to write and take digital photos, we have a job for you. We are seeking individuals to attend our tree planting events and write stories about the details of the event and take pictures during the tree planting to upload on our website. We especially need Storytellers for Tree Plantings, Blitzes and Depots in Spring and Fall since staff are very busy monitoring the plantings and have little time to take notes. 

Responsibilities

  • Attend tree planting events
  • Write stories about details of the event, take quotes
  • Interview volunteers
  • Recognize donors
  • Take pictures at the event

Time Commitment
Typically Storytellers spend 2 hours at events to collect details and take pictures, plus additional time to write, edit, and upload stories and photos. Minimum of 1-2 stories per year.
