Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is looking for friendly volunteers to help talk to and educate kayakers and other potential paddlers about paddling on Lake Superior.
Kayak paddling is NOT required for this position! The position is land based.
Paddling on Lake Superior looks fun, but the life threatening dangers are very real. Cold water, fast changing weather, and rock walls are major concerns. All those venturing out need to have the skills, the right boats (sea kayaks; not recreation kayaks), and right equipment (wet or dry suits, life jackets, etc.) before going out on the Lake.
Volunteers will work at major kayak launching spots such as Miners Beach and Sand Point. They will talk safety with visitors, asking if they know how to self-rescue, what happens when one falls into cold water, etc. Volunteers will have safety and kayaking gear on hand, including sea and recreation kayaks.
HOUSING & AMENITIES Type: Trailer/RV Pads Description: An RV pad is available for volunteers willing to give 32 hrs per week or more.
