River Ambassador Takes Up His Post

July 8, 2013 Jackson Hole No Comments
Pistono

The Snake River Fund has made it possible for River Ambassador Jay Pistono to return this year to the river’s Wilson-South Park stretch to greet visitors, educate boaters and do what he can to help ease congestion during times of heavy use at the Wilson and South Park boat ramps. Funding for the position comes from grants provided by the Bureau of Land Management and Wyoming Game and Fish Department.  Pistono answers questions about fishing and river flows, helps boaters unload heavy rafts, helps dories launch and land, inspects boat hulls for invasive species, takes water temperature measurements, directs buses in turning around, helps find lost items and logs statistics about user volumes.  Snake River Fund officials announced that this year, Pistono will have some help on the busier days from Volunteer Eliot Neal of the Snake River Fund.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
