2012 City of Eugene’s Outdoor Program’s River Guide School

4 05 2012

The River House is currently conducting its bi-annual River Guide School led and taught by Aimee Goglia and Colette Ramirez-Maddock along with on the river training with Jack Hart and Omar Nelson. Today they are on the McKenzie River with 12 total temp staff representing four different community centers (River House, Sheldon, Petersen Barn and Amazon Community Center). All guide school participants will be learning and practicing both paddle guiding and rowing techniques. Once they have completed guide school, Aimee and Colette will meet with each student and outline their individualized plan to officially become a guide. On a rare occasion, new guides will leave guide school “checked-out” and are able to sign up for work the following week. So, this year you might see one, two or three new guides taking you down one of our wonderful rivers.
