Marsh Ambassadors (Preserve Entrance) are the first person the general public encounters when visiting the Madrona Marsh Preserve. Ambassadors provide a first impression of the Madrona Marsh and may be the only member of the Madrona team with whom visitors communicate. The Marsh Ambassador is positioned at the entry station to the Madrona Marsh Preserve, greets visitors and logs them in and out on the daily record sheet. They also provide information, maps, and handouts to visitors and advises guests regarding guidelines and rules. This position is located outdoors (under a covered station).
