Grand Teton Seeks Volunteers for Summer 2019

Grand Teton National Park is currently seeking applicants who are interested in participating in two Foundation-supported volunteer programs — both the Snake River Ambassadors and the String Lake Brigade are hiring for summer 2019.

Are you an experienced river-user who enjoys interacting with the public? Become a Snake River Ambassador this summer!

Grand Teton’s Snake River Ambassadors educate visitors about 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, volunteers help increase safety, prevent accidents, and improve visitors’ experiences. The park is looking for people who have knowledge and skills paddling rivers and excel at interacting with the public to help increase awareness of river safety.

Help ensure safe, memorable visitor-wildlife experiences in Grand Teton this summer – join the String Lakers!

In 2016, Grand Teton National Park developed a program to help protect wildlife and promote visitor safety around the popular String Lake area. The outstanding work of the String Lake Brigade (aka “Lakers”) has had a positive impact — since the program began, zero wildlife food rewards have been reported. The park is looking for people who would like to spend their summer days at this beautiful location and enjoy interacting with the public.

Scheduling for both programs is flexible and training is provided.

If you are interested in volunteering or would like to learn more, call Jess Erwin at 307-739-3452 or follow this link to view the application.
