Wayne National Forest, OH

Trail Patrol Volunteers Needed For Wayne National Forest

Nelsonville, OH - (January 13, 2010) The Wayne National Forest will begin a series of training sessions as early as February for volunteers interested in the Forest Trail Patrol program. This is a great opportunity for volunteers to partner with the Forest and to take an active role in providing better customer service to trail users.

The first session starts Saturday, February 6th and will focus on first aid and CPR training. Subsequent trainings will include being a good host, radio communication, GPS/map reading, basic fire safety, plant identification, and ATV safety.

To be eligible to serve as a Trail Patrol Volunteer, you must be at least 18 years of age and possess a current valid state driver's license, successfully complete all required training, own a good working all-terrain vehicle or off-highway motorcycle, have no outstanding warrants, DUI, drug, or other felony convictions, have demonstrated good work ethics and the ability to contact visitors in a courteous and positive manner.

Once volunteers have completed the series of required training, they'll be ready to begin patrolling in June 2010.

The Forest is enrolling volunteers for the training sessions now through Friday, January 29th.  For more information about the program and to obtain a registration form, look under Quick Links on the Forest web site at http://www.fs.fed.us/r9/wayne/. You may also contact Marsha Wikle on the Ironton Ranger District at (740) 534-6500 or by email at mwikle@fs.fed.us.
