Would you like to ride off-highway vehicles (OHVs) and interact with the public? We are looking for friendly and caring pairs of volunteers to assist the OHV-riding public with safety, questions, conservation education, and legal riding. These volunteer opportunities are in the gorgeous Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, close to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, the Mesa Falls Scenic Byway, and the Sacajawea Historic Byway.
OHV Ambassadors would ride designated trails or station at OHV trailheads or other prominent OHV areas for the purpose of interacting with the riding public. Ambassadors would provide maps (both paper and electronic), answer questions, help riders abide by state law for safety, prevent illegal motorized use, educate the public about how illegal motorized use harms public lands, and perform minor trail maintenance or maintain closures.
OHV Ambassadors would work in pairs. One pair would work on the Dubois District and another pair would work on the Ashton-Island Park District.
An RV camping spot with full hook-ups would be provided free-of-charge at both Districts. Dubois Ambassadors would have a site at Stoddard Creek Campground, while Ashton-Island Park Ambassadors would have a site at the Island Park Ranger Station RV camping area.
A volunteer reimbursement of $25 per day would be provided for each day of service. Ambassadors would serve weekends and holidays for eight hours per day from Memorial Day Weekend to Labor Day Weekend. Service would not be required on weekdays. Days would start at approximately 9 a.m.
Ambassadors on the Ashton-Island Park District would need to provide their own OHVs with a width of 50 inches or less. Ambassadors on the Dubois District could provide their own OHVs with a width of 50 inches or less OR could use District UTVs. Volunteer uniform components would be provided. Guidance, orientation, and training would be provided by the recreation specialist(s), the wildlife biologist, and the law enforcement officer.
