The Spillway is a high-use area that can bring as many as 1000 people or more in one day during the peak use days and requires a minimum of two volunteers at a time. One person assists at the contact station, which is equipped with a radio, phone, cash register, safe, heater and air conditioner. The other person assists with boat launching, parking and people moving. Additional grounds maintenance, picking up litter, mowing lawns, trimming vegetation, and making sure the area is inviting and presentable are expected.
Little Hole is a day use area with three boat ramps, picnic tables, trails, and restrooms. Scheduling is arranged in the same as for The Spillway, with one volunteer assisting at the contact station collecting data from river users, selling Use Passes, answering questions, and giving out information, while the other assists visitors with launching and landing. The booth is equipped with a radio, phone, cash register, fax machine, safe, heater and air conditioner.
As at Spillway, the other person will be doing basic grounds maintenance, picking up litter, mowing lawns, trimming vegetation, cleaning the picnic areas and restrooms. Although assisting boaters with launching, unlike Spillway, Little Hole is also a landing spot. However, it is not as fast-paced as at the Spillway.
The individuals filling these positions must be able to give instruction in a clear, direct manner, but not offend the visitor while doing so. For this reason, it is extremely important to have good people skills.
Forest Service will provide all supplies and equipment necessary to do the work. Amenities include a trailer pad with full hookups, and laundry facilities.
