Where:  Minnesota State Fairgrounds, Education Building, Booth 59, St. Paul, MN

Howling For Wolves will again have booth 59 inside the Education Building for all 12 days of the Minnesota State Fair.  This is a critical event where we reach and educate thousands of people about the recreational wolf hunt in Minnesota.  Please let your family/friends know to visit the booth and sign our letter to protect the Minnesota wolf population.  The booth is open 9 AM to 9 PM every day of the fair.

We are now looking for volunteers to work the booth each day of the fair.  Our plan this year is to gather electronic letter signers.  We have three 4 hour shifts each day:  9 AM to 1 PM; 1 PM to 5 PM; and 5 PM to 9 PM.  

This year we will reimburse you for your ticket or leave a ticket at the "Will Call" window at the Loop Gate (#9) on Como Avenue.  Fair Map found here:  http://www.mnstatefair.org/general_info/get_here/maps.html.

Please email us at volunteer@howlingforwolves.org to let us know when you are able to work.  We are also scheduling four information/training meetings to take place before the fair begins.  Please watch the Events page for those times and places.
