Green Squad - Event Waste Management Assistance
Green Squad volunteers help our county events recycle more and create less waste. Green Squad volunteers are composed of Dakota County Recycling Ambassadors who are trained to be good stewards of our resources and to help others make smart decisions when it comes to recycling and waste management. Volunteers must first complete Dakota County's Recycling Ambassador program to participate in Green Squad events.

Lebanon Hills Regional Park - Trails By Candlelight - February 17, 2023
The grand finale of our winter candlelight events. Enjoy Lebanon Hills Regional Park in Eagan by flickering candlelight with more than 1,500 luminaries lining more than 4 miles of trails. A variety of cross-county ski, snowshoe, hiking and walking trails with varying distances will be lit. When you need a break, stop by one of our roaring bonfires to warm up and roast a marshmallow. Fun for the whole family.
Volunteers of all ages are needed to help support multiple activities before, during, and after to help make this event a success. All volunteers will receive free access to the event (except event takedown volunteers - you get free breakfast) and volunteers who help during the event will receive a dinner voucher to use at one of our participating food trucks. To ensure a high quality experience, pre-registration is required to volunteer. Space is limited and spots fill quickly. Check out the roster below to see what opportunities are available.
