Wilderness Ranger: Four opportunities are available. Duties would include provding visitor information and education, collecting trash, restoring and monitoring natural resources, and performing light trail maintenance in a popular wilderness area. This is a fun job working outdoors in the High Uintas Wilderness, but it is physically strenuous as it requires hiking several miles each day with 60-70 lb. pack in high altitudes, mountain weather, and rugged terrain.
Volunteer must also have good communication and interpersonal skills, be very independent, and be able to work in the wilderness alone for extended periods. Experience with pack stock is a plus. Horseback positions may also be available to qualified applicants with stock. Forest Service will provide equipment and training. Reimbursement for subsistence is provided. Dates are negotiable, but generally run June to September.
HOUSING & AMENITIES Type: Bunk House Description: Housing is available in a bunk house setting.
