Forest officials are specifically looking for veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces, as they know veterans already have the attributes they need in the positions they’re hoping to fill. Ideal candidates possess strong communication skills, are comfortable communicating with a diverse public, are self-motivated, and know how to work as part of an effective team.

Positions are temporary but still significant. The average term of employment is from mid-May to the end of October.

If hired, veterans will work as part of the larger Shoshone National Forest team to accomplish recreation management tasks throughout the Forest’s Ranger Districts: visitor contacts, motorized patrol, backcountry patrol, regulatory compliance, trail maintenance, counting and organizing campground monies, and site maintenance.

Government housing will be available to those veterans hired.

Interested candidates should send a resume, references, and copy of their DD-214 to no later than April 10, 2021. For additional information please contact Ashley Duke at (307) 578-5225.
