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.
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.
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.
