PENN VALLEY, Calif. February 15, 2017 – Are you interested in volunteering and/or becoming a docent at our beautiful South Yuba River State Historic Park?

This is your opportunity to learn new skills, make new friends and share in the joy of helping our State Parks remain alive.

What: Please Join Us For Our Volunteer “Open House”
Where: South Yuba River State Park – Bridgeport
When: Saturday, February 25th
Time: 10am – 12noon

The barn, gas station and visitor center will be open and there will be docents on site to show prospective docents and volunteers what types of volunteer opportunities we currently have at the South Yuba River State Park.

Once you are familiar with the great opportunities available to you, there will be Volunteer Sign-Ups on Saturday, March 4th from 9:00am – 3:30pm OR Saturday, March 11 from 9:00 – 3:30pm. Prospective volunteers only need to attend one Saturday block.  The location for sign-ups will be at Empire Mine State Historic Park Docent Room. The Sign-Up session will cover what a “volunteer means to California State Parks” and discussing park policies, procedures and philosophy. We will, as a group, be guided through the hiring paperwork and discuss the benefits of being a State Park volunteer. Since a criminal background check is required prior to working as a State Park volunteer, we will have onsite finger printing “live scan” being conducted during the Saturday sessions. Individuals will need to bring to the sign-up a photo ID and $10 check or cash for the background processing.
