SYRCL is seeking to hire two River Captains who will be the face of SYRCL’s new River Ambassador Program this summer and who will be responsible for managing a corps of volunteer River Ambassadors on the river.
The River Ambassador Program focuses on educating and motivating the thousands of annual visitors to the Yuba River to help keep the area clean, safe and healthy. By talking face-to-face to visitors at river crossings, at beaches and on trails, the River Captains and a corps of volunteer River Ambassadors will vastly expand outreach about the Yuba and how visitors can care for it.
The program will target two heavily used river crossings along the South Yuba River, the Highway 49 Bridge and Purdon Crossings every weekend from June 30 – September 15 including Fourth of July and Labor Day Holidays. River Ambassador training will focus on how to educate visitors about river stewardship and to encourage responsible behaviors at the river. Ambassadors will not be trained to be park rangers or police and will have no enforcement responsibilities.
