The Great Rivers Greenway is seeking volunteer docents to help staff the organization's new visitor's center, which opens officially in late September, at 6174 Delmar Boulevard.
Great Rivers Greenway to Open Visitor's Center in Loop
O'Fallon, MO, (SLFP.com), July 26, 2015 - Great Rivers Greenway is calling on area residents who are passionate about the outdoors to become a volunteer docent at the district's new Visitor's Center, which will officially open in late September.
The Visitor's Center, located at the Great Rivers Greenways offices at 6174 Delmar Boulevard, was recently added by the organization to provide a physical space where both those who live in the St. Louis region and visitors can interactively connect to the various greenways around the region, learn about future greenway expansion plans and discover the many possibilities for outdoor recreation.
Volunteer docents are needed to staff the Visitor's Center and educate guests on the River Ring, a planned 600-mile interconnected system of greenways, parks and trails that will eventually span across St. Louis City, St. Louis County and St. Charles County.
Docents will serve as ambassadors for Great Rivers Greenway and will distribute maps and reading materials, oversee the sales of Great Rivers Greenway merchandise, provide information to visitors about our region's greenways and help them use the center's interactive touch-screen display, which will be available for guests to learn about existing and planned greenways.
The Visitor Center hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Scheduling is flexible, however, docents are asked to make at least a four-hour commitment per week. Those chosen as volunteer docents will also receive on-the-job training and continuing education that will make them qualified to help others get to know Great Rivers Greenway and the River Ring trail system a little better.
To access an application or get more information on the position and qualifications, visit http://greatriversgreenway.org/get-involved/. Applications can be submitted electronically and must be received before noon on Wednesday, August 12.

Enterprise Holdings Hires More Than 6,000 Military Service Members since Joining 100,000 Jobs Mission
O'Fallon, MO, (SLFP.com), July 5, 2015 - Enterprise Holdings has announced it has hired more than 6,000 military veterans and reservists since joining the ranks of the 100,000 Jobs Mission coalition in 2012.
The 100,000 Jobs Mission brings together private companies that recognize the tremendous value military veterans bring to the workplace and are committed to helping former service members make the transition from military to civilian careers. Founded in 2011 by 11 companies, the coalition has helped place more than 240,000 veterans in engaging careers.
Enterprise Holdings, which owns and operates the Enterprise Rent-A-Car, National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car brands, is one of more than 190 companies associated with the 100,000 Jobs Mission. Enterprise Holdings is the largest car rental company in the world as measured by revenue, fleet and employees. Through its regional subsidiaries, the company operates more than 6,000 fully staffed offices in the U.S. - almost 70 percent more than its nearest competitor - and all located within 15 miles of 90 percent of the U.S. population.
"Much like the military, Enterprise rewards and recognizes individuals for their performance and commitment to teamwork," said Pam Webster, assistant vice president of talent acquisition at Enterprise Holdings. "The dedication, work ethic and team spirit our former service members bring to the workplace make them natural leaders at Enterprise, and we look forward to hiring even more veterans as a member of the 100,000 Jobs Mission coalition."
Enterprise Holdings' support of the military focuses on three key areas - recruitment and hiring, local operations and community relations. Today, veterans and reservists comprise nearly 10 percent of Enterprise Holdings' total U.S. workforce.
