Outdoor School Parent Volunteers The Polk Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) encourages, appreciates, and needs parent volunteers to make Outdoor School a success. Please read the following to see if you are interested.
Parent volunteers must abide by the following rules:

All parent volunteers will assist in meal set-up and clean up.
Parent volunteers cannot stay overnight due to limited sleeping space.
No one is allowed to roam freely about the campground for security reasons.
