Thank you for volunteering to be a part of SURF’s Neutrino Day!
When you arrive in Lead, we recommend parking near the Sanford Lab Homestake Visitor Center. For your safety, please use the crosswalk at Mill Street or Gold Street when crossing US Highway 85.
If you are volunteering with a group, we recommend your team consider meeting and carpooling from the Gold Run Park to the best parking option for the Handley Recreation Center to allow for accessible parking for all our volunteers.
Events kick off at 8:30 a.m. at this location, so please plan to arrive at 8 a.m. for morning volunteer shifts and check in at the welcome table near the entrance to the Sanford Lab Homestake Visitor Center where your volunteer t-shirt and a Neutrino Day informational pocket guide will be waiting for you. We will direct you to your designated location.
All-day events conclude at 3:30 p.m. so please plan on visitors being at this location until this time. (The Visitor Center remains open to the public until 5 p.m.) You may choose to bring a lunch or snacks to enjoy during your shift. Water will be provided at the Sanford Lab Homestake Visitor Center.
Please consider having adequate protection from the summer weather and temperatures. This includes comfortable clothes and shoes, a hat, and sunscreen, unless you have specifically requested an indoor location.
Through Fall 2023, if you are traveling from outside the city of Lead, there is construction on Mill Street so both access and parking between the Sanford Lab Homestake Visitor Center and the Ross and Yates Complexes are limited to local traffic only.
Following your volunteer shift, please take a moment to complete the Neutrino Day survey to help us improve our volunteer experience for next year.
