BRECKSVILLE, Ohio — Cuyahoga Valley National Park is recruiting volunteers and their dogs to serve in a new volunteer group, Paw Patrol. Volunteers will patrol in pairs with their dogs to serve as ambassadors on the trails, sharing park information and answering questions.
CVNP is one of the few national parks that allow dogs and Paw Patrol is one of the first dog volunteer programs offered in the National Park System.
Interested individuals are invited to attend an information session on Feb. 26 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the November Lodge Legacy Room on the Cuyahoga Valley Environmental Education Center campus, 3675 Oak Hill Road, Peninsula. Dogs are not permitted at the information session.
The meeting will cover the steps to join Paw Patrol which include interview and certification times for both prospective human and canine volunteers. Selected volunteers and dogs will undergo extensive testing and training.
For more information on the program contact park ranger Brady Bourquin at 330-657-2752, ext. 351 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
