The U.S. Forest Service is planning to hire more than 600 temporary employees for the Rocky Mountain Region, which includes positions at 17 national forests and seven national grasslands throughout Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wyoming.  

There are a variety of job opportunities available in different departments within the Forest Service. If you love to be surrounded by nature and working outdoors sounds like the perfect fit for you, they will be hiring positions for trail management, forestry, fisheries, recreation, wildlife, fire protection, and archaeology. The Forest Service will also be looking to fill administrative support and engineering positions.

To learn more about each of these specific jobs/requirements, or if you are interested in applying, visit the U.S. Forest Service Page here. The application period will be taking place from January 7 through January 14 for wild-land fire positions and other early season, non-fire temporary positions, early February for most non-fire temporary positions in recreation, fisheries, forestry and engineering, and early March for other positions.
