We are very thankful for the volunteers last year! Last October, here's what we accomplished together in Boxley Valley:
5,633 visitor contacts
20 individual volunteers (predominantly BNRP members, and many who volunteered on multiple days)
201 volunteer hours
This fall is sure to be another doozy. It would be tremendous to have two volunteers per duty location (see below) per weekend day in October to best serve park visitors. We suspect that our busiest weekends will be October 19-20 and 26-27, so those dates are the top priority volunteer slots to fill.
As a reminder, here are the primary volunteer duties at each location:
Lost Valley: parking/traffic control, radio communications, providing trail maps and area information, keeping count of visitor contacts (using a clicker)
Elk Viewing Area: elk education, distributing park information (Junior Ranger books, river maps, Leave No Trace cards, hunting guidebooks), helping visitors with wayfinding and suggesting outdoor activities in the area, keeping count of visitor contacts
Boxley Mill: welcoming guests, providing information/answering questions about the mill, giving guided tours, distributing park information, keeping count of visitor contacts
Volunteer times are Saturday, 9 am to 2 pm, and Sunday, 9 am to 2 pm.
