Tree Mascot

Tree Mascot

We need friendly people to wear our tree mascot costume at upcoming  festivals and community events. The costume is lightweight and easy to wear. Ideally, we'll have two people at a time that can switch off wearing the costume. The tree will wander around events engaging people about tree planting, the Million Tree Challenge, and upcoming events. The costume is designed to be interactive, and people will be invited to add leaves to the tree. 

Responsibilities

  • Walking around events to engage people about tree planting, the Million Tree Challenge, and upcoming events

Time Commitment 
Event shifts are typically 2-3 hours, usually on the weekend or in the evening
