Kids 12 and under may attend for free
Volunteer for the ADU Tour
We need 50 volunteers to pull off the ADU Tour. It’s a 3.5 hour volunteer commitment (morning or afternoon on either day of the tour) that comes with a free pass to see the ADUs during the alternate day that you’re not volunteering. Tour volunteers are assigned to a particular ADU, and check wristbands, tally attendance at the ADU, and answer basic questions about the tour. There will be a 1-hour volunteer training prior to the tour. If you’re interested in volunteering, contact the tour organizer at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you a quick form to fill out online.
