Ranch of Dreams Bus Drivers Needed

The Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch, is a world-renowned animal sanctuary in Murchison, Texas that was founded in 1979 by author and animal advocate Cleveland Amory. The sanctuary is not a zoo, but is now open to the public 1-2 times per month for small, pre-scheduled, guided bus tours to respect the peace and privacy of the animals.

We are looking for several volunteer bus drivers to assist with our Ranch of Dreams Tours and other events as needed. You can learn more about the sanctuary and the tours at www.fundforanimals.org/blackbeauty

• Available at least one Saturday per month for 3-4 hours. Tours are at 10am        during the summer and 1pm the rest of the year. We understand if you can’t      make all of the tours, and will rotate drivers based on availability.

• Possess a CDL license.

• Provide proof of a negative TB titer.

• Pass a criminal background check.

• Complete an online application form at http://bit.ly/VolunteerCABBR 

• Once your application is approved, the volunteer coordinator will contact you to   discuss next steps and schedule you for a new volunteer orientation, where you   will learn more about our work and the volunteer process.

• Complete required volunteer and safety paperwork.

• You will be trained in all aspects of your volunteer work.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Sep. 22)

GOOD. Water lightly stained; 82 degrees; 0.58 feet low. Largemouth bass are good with chartreuse flukes, diving crankbaits and Texas rigged plastic worms near brush piles, docks and timber in 14-28 feet of water. Hybrids and sand bass are good on main lake points, humps and flats using spoons, slabs and live bait. Crappie are slowing down as the lake turns to the fall pattern. Stick with it and you will find a few, try using minnows and jigs in brush piles, beneath boat docks and bridges. Catfish are good using live bait, punch bait and chicken liver.
