Floating on the Snake River through Grand Teton National Park is an inspiring experience. Around every bend, boaters are presented with unique and stunning views of the Teton Range. The incredible beauty and accessibility, combined with the Wild and Scenic designation, have led to increased recreational use on the river in recent years. This has led park officials to develop a volunteer program that aims to create a positive and safe experience for people floating the Snake River.

Grand Teton’s Snake River Ambassador program educates visitors about the potential hazards and necessary skills to safely navigate the river in the park. By interacting with users at access points before they launch their boats, volunteer ambassadors will help increase safety, prevent accidents, and improve visitors’ experiences.

Do you have a passion for rivers? Now is your chance to get involved!

Grand Teton National Park is currently seeking applicants who are interested in volunteering for the second summer of the Snake River Ambassador program. The park is looking for people who have knowledge and skills paddling rivers and who excel at interacting with the public to help increase awareness of river safety. Scheduling is flexible and training will be provided.

If you are interested in sharing your expertise and would like to be a part of this impactful program, apply today by emailing grte_volunteer@nps.gov or visiting https://www.nps.gov/grte/getinvolved/volunteer.htm.
