Volunteers will assist at river information booths and provide information, collect data, and sell Use Passes to visitors. Volunteers will also assist with launch ramp operations ensuring that traffic coming in and out of these busy areas is done in a safe and orderly manner. Volunteers operating the ramp must be in good physical condition. Good communication skills are important as these sites are high visitation areas.
Other duties include basic grounds maintenance, litter pick up, trimming vegetation, and daily restroom cleaning.
Forest Service will provide all supplies and a trailer pad with full hookups, and laundry facilities are available. Reimbursement for subsistence (if applicable) and official mileage to and from the work site are provided. Positions are available May through to September. More detail is provided below.
The Spillway requires a minimum of two volunteers at a time. One person assists the contact station collecting data from river users, sells Use Passes, answers questions from the public and gives out information. There are two large parking areas near the booth. The booth is equipped with a radio, phone, cash register, safe, heater and air conditioner.
The other person is below at the boat ramp launch area directing traffic and instructing people on where to park and unload. This is a high-use area that can bring as many as 1000 people or more in one day during the peak use days. Because of this, it is extremely important to have good people skills. This person must be able to give instruction in a clear, direct manner, but not offend the visitor while doing so. Daily cleaning of the restroom is the responsibility of the boat ramp operator. Minor maintenance projects can be done during slow times in between visitors.
