Large tour concerns

  • Dismantling floppies, other tasks for splitting large tour groups up
    • Block out recycling table in schedule & let recycling know (need safety goggles and gloves for all)
  • Do we have staff,intern, volunteer with one group recycling while the other group is on the tour?
  • Should the adults/contacts take tour first to answer any questions the kids may have?
