Verde River Ambassador

IMG_1375Today I embarked on a new life adventure. I was hired by the Town of Clarkdale as one of their Verde River Ambassadors, a part-time position that should be a lot of fun.

We patrol and monitor the town’s 3 mile long Verde River @ Clarkdale Park providing education about the river corridor’s ecology and wildlife, monitor and assist the 4 commercial kayaking company’s launches, and generally keep the 2 kayak launch areas clean and appealing to visitors.

I received my final training today and will be turned loose on my own in the next few days. Once again my life has taken an interesting and somewhat unexpected route.
