The annual training for Juan Bautista de Anza National Trails & Rails program for guides on Amtrak is slated for Saturday February 24, 2018.

You will meet others participating and learn about the program in a workshop in Santa Barbara beginning at 9:00 AM and ending at 4:00 PM.
New guides are needed and will learn about the importance of this trail to our national history.

This one day classroom training is offered only once a year and it is followed by 3 peer to peer training sessions aboard the Coast Starlight weekends in March & April. . Here is a link that tells you a little bit about our local Trails & Rails program on the Juan Bautista de Anza Trail https://Goletadepot.wordpress.com/trails-and-rails/

Guides deliver talks in the Amtrak Lounge car traveling North from Santa Barbara enroute to San Luis Obispo & return.
This is one of 24 Trails & Rails seasonal programs offered on Amtrak to passengers.
