Do you like answering questions and helping people? Do you have free time before heading to the playa? Or, are you not going to the playa this year but still want to actively participate? If any of these apply to you, then you could be a good volunteer for Air Playa Info.
Established in 2008, Air Playa Info is an off-playa bureau of Playa Info. It is an Information service provided at the Reno-Tahoe International Airport by Burning Man and the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority during the event to assist Burners arriving via the airport. The Airport Authority estimates approximately 10,000-15,000 Burners come through the airport during the event, so our Info service is very helpful and needed!
Air Playa Info Oracles greet Burners and answer questions. A variety of information and resources are available to assist travelers in getting the details they need, so they can move onward toward their playa destination. We provide information such as directions to Black Rock City, local Reno-area resources, and rideshare possibilities.
If you enjoy interacting with people and know enough about the Reno area and/or the Burning Man event to answer questions, we would love to have you as a volunteer for a 3 or 4-hour shift!
If you would like to volunteer with Air Playa Info, please check the “Air Playa Info” box under the “Volunteer Team Interests” section on the Volunteer Questionnaire, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
You will find the gratitude of the people you help enormously rewarding!
