American River Water Education Center seeks volunteers

Warning: Cannot use a scalar value as an array in /www/villagelife.com/html/wp-includes/option.php on line 85

FOLSOM — The Bureau of Reclamation’s Central California Area Office needs volunteers to assist at the American River Water Education Center.

Located near Folsom Dam and along the American River bike trail, ARWEC offers an interesting and entertaining way to increase the public’s knowledge of the American River watershed, the water cycle, water management, resource conservation, and the multiple roles, benefits and history of Folsom Dam, Reservoir and Powerplant.

Volunteer opportunities at ARWEC include:

  • Greeting visitors and answering questions in the exhibit center
  • Assisting the groundskeeper in maintaining the drought-tolerant garden, a Certified Wildlife Habitat
  • Leading hands-on activities with school groups in the schoolhouse, amphitheater, or picnic grounds
  • Guiding school groups through the exhibit center or on a hike around Beals Point at Folsom Reservoir.

Interested individuals will interview with the ARWEC volunteer coordinator and must pass a background investigation. An orientation in late August will be scheduled for all new volunteers, followed by 60 days of on-the-job training. Although not required, experience in elementary education or interpretation and an interest in water conservation is a plus.

ARWEC is open to the public Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For additional information visit the ARWEC website at usbr.gov/mp/arwec or contact Joan Roush, reclamation guide, 7794 Folsom Dam Road, Folsom 95630-1799, (916) 989-7289 or [email protected].
