Aransas NWR Conducted Activity and Shuttle Tour Training

Saturday, January 10, 2015 10:02 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)



 We would like to invite you to attend one of two Conducted Activity and Shuttle Tour trainings.  Examples of conducted activities would included guided walks and informal refuge talks (typically out on the refuge).  Shuttle tour training will provide you the tools to lead refuge tours using our refuge shuttle bus.  


The morning session will be an Introduction to Conducted Activities and a demonstration tour by Ron Smudy. Coffee and muffins will be provided starting at 8:00. Training will get underway at 8:30.  Following lunch, we’ll go over some logistical details, allow you time to familiarize yourself with the shuttle and the “tool” box, have some time to work on your own tours and have some time to ask questions.


When:   Saturday, January 24, 2015

            8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

            (Potluck lunch 12:30-1 pm; bring something to share).


            Monday, January 26, 2015

            8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

            (Potluck lunch 12:30-1 pm; bring something to share).

Where:  Commons building located in the housing area


Who:  You must attend this training if you want to lead a tour or guided hike in the Refuge.  We also need shuttle drivers!!! For safety reasons, tour leaders should not be driving.  So this is an opportunity for those of you who want to contribute but not lead programs. We would like to encourage you to come to the entire training but you are only required to be there for the afternoon.
