Thank you for volunteering to be a part of SURF’s Neutrino Day! Volunteers at the Yates Complex are required to have access to SURF prior to Neutrino Day.
When you arrive in Lead, we recommend parking near the Yates Hoistroom. Your volunteer t-shirt and a Neutrino Day informational pocket guide to assist you in helping our visitors will be available at the Yates Hoistroom when you arrive, or may be picked up at the SURF Administration Building prior to Neutrino Day.
The first tour departs the Sanford Lab Homestake Visitor Center at 9 a.m., so please plan to arrive by 9 a.m. for morning volunteer shifts. Tours will depart the Sanford Lab Homestake Visitor Center at 9, 10, 11 a.m., 1, 2, and 3 p.m.
Morning-only volunteers may leave at the end of the 11 a.m. tour. Afternoon volunteers should plan to arrive at the hoistroom by 1 p.m. The final tour will return to the Sanford Lab Homestake Visitors Center just before 4 p.m.
You may choose to bring a lunch or snacks to enjoy during your shift. Water will be provided for volunteers at this location.
While most activities will be indoors, please consider having adequate protection from the summer weather and temperatures. This includes comfortable clothes and shoes, a hat, and sunscreen.
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.
