Do you love the Yuba River and want to see it remain clean and safe for all? Become a trained River Ambassador as part of SYRCL’s new River Ambassador Program which 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, volunteer River Ambassadors, along with river captains will vastly expand outreach about the Yuba and how visitors can care for it.
SYRCL is seeking 25 dedicated volunteer River Ambassadors to commit to at least five shifts (3 hours each) over the course of the summer between July 4 and September 15 including Fourth of July and Labor Day Holidays.
The program will target two heavily used river crossings along the South Yuba River, the Highway 49 Bridge and Purdon Crossings. Ambassadors will be trained 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. Spend your summer at the Yuba!
- Thursday, June 28 from 5:30 – 8:30 pm or Saturday, June 30 from 10 am – 1 pm.
- Both trainings will be at the SYRCL office.
- River Ambassadors need to attend just one of the trainings. If you cannot attend either training, we would still like to hear from you if you are interested as we might have a future training in July for new volunteers.
Please send applications to Miriam Limov at Miriam@syrcl.org by June 26.
