Volunteer Opportunities and Fun Community Events!
Want to help keep the Farmington River Beautiful and a Fun and Safe Place to Recreate? Consider giving some time as a volunteer assistant River Steward or a volunteer for the Parks and Recreation Department. There are many opportunities to become invloved. For more Parks and Recreation program info email-Donna Bastrzycki-Recreation Directoremail@example.com
Are you passionate about the Farmington River? Do you enjoy being outdoors and making a difference in the community? Consider offering a few hours of your time to help a great cause. What can you do?
- There is a new team of 'Assistant Stewards' for the summer of 2015. These people will help spread the word about proper etiquette on the river and provide a presence during the busier times. This could be a great learning experience for students majoring in environmental studies/conservation, or just someone who enjoys interacting with others. If interested in learning more please contact-Stephan Bastrzycki-River Steward at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Periodically there are river cleanups held on specific stretches of the river. A few people volunteering a couple hours of their time can make a big difference. Check our calendar of events on the home page of the Farmington River Steward website-http://farmingtonriversteward.org/ when the next cleanup become scheduled.
- Consider 'adopting' a small stretch of river and help keep it clean.
- If you do not want to actually commit to any hours, be our eyes on the river. The next time you are out on the Farmington and see something that needs reporting, let us know via email at email@example.com
- Maybe it is a downed tree creating a hazard in the water or an area of trash that needs to be cleaned up.
Junior River Ranger Program! 2015
The Wild and Scenic Rivers program of the National Park Service along with the Farmington River Coordinating Committee is offering the Junior River Ranger Program for youth. Children are able to pick up an activity booklet at the Farmington River Coordinating Committee's office at Squires Tavern, The Stone Museum at People's State Forest, Barkhamsted Town Hall in the main office. All children that attended the Barkhamsted Recreation Commission's Summer Camp will recieve a booklet during camp and complete fun lessons throughout our camp week. Once your child completes their book and has it signed off at one of the above locations, they will receive their badge and award.
The Junior River Ranger program is modeled after the Junior Rangers program found in many national parks. The program allows youth to explore the Wild and Scenic Upper Farmington River and provide them with opportunities to protect and learn more about the river. The River Rangers will be given an activity booklet that teaches them about Wild and Scenic Rivers, the rivers’ special attributes, and how they can help be ambassadors for our incredibly beautiful river.
The booklet has activities that get youth and families out on the river and participate in hands on exploring and learning. The program is geared for children aged 6-12 years old, but all youth are encouraged to participate if they want to. Once the youth complete the booklet, they can hand it in, have it checked, and receive a badge and certificate stating they are now a Junior River Ranger.
For more information on the program, contact Stephan Bastrzycki, River Steward at the Farmington River Coordinating Committee- riversteward@farmington river.org, or check out the committee’s website, www.farmingtonriver.org. If you would like to help with the program or as an volunteer assistant river steward, volunteers are always welcome!
