We are looking for energetic, friendly and outgoing "people-persons" to assist in the day-to-day operations of our Visitor Information Center. You would help visitors find the perfect trail, campground, or picnic area, as well as learn about how to protect the forest, get to know the local plants and animals, and be safe. Meet and work with others that have similar interests, and contribute to a team focused on providing service to their community. Develop a greater understanding of the forest environment.
The Santa Rosa Ranger District Office is located in the USDA Service Center that also offices Farm Services and Natural Resources and Conservation Services (NRCS). This new office is located at the west end of town just off of West Winnemucca Blvd. We expect a considerable amount of interest from the public looking for information about the Santa Rosa’s in our new location due to better signage on the main street as visitors come into town.
This opportunity consists of meeting and greeting forest visitors and the dissemination of area information. The assistant duties include the selling of items such as maps and firewood permits; some restocking and inventory maintenance, giving directions and making suggestions on area attractions. The position is 2 to 3 days a week, 4 to 7 hours a day. There is an Office Manager who will train and guide you in the day-to-day operations, area attractions and local information.
The Santa Rosa Mountain Range is located 60 miles north of Winnemucca along Highway 95 to State Route 290 and has one developed campground (Lye Creek) which is nestled in a grove of aspen trees along Lye Creek. It sits at an elevation of 7,398 feet.
