The Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area is looking for an enthusiastic couple to perform the duties of Day Use Site Host for the Wahkeena Falls Day Use Site for 2022! This opportunity is in the Columbia River Gorge, close to the community of Cascade Locks, Oregon and the many recreational opportunities located nearby. Wahkeena Falls Day Use Site is located on the Historic Columbia River Highway (U.S. Route 30), and includes parking, a picnic area, and toilet facilities. It is a popular site along the Historic Highway and serves as a trailhead for the Wahkeena Falls Trail and an access point to an extensive system of trails. The site is also close to Multnomah Falls, one of the most popular natural attractions in the Pacific Northwest.

Training will be provided by the Forest Service. Electric, water and sewer hookups are provided as well as reimbursement for official travel and propane. Host receives $16 per day for living reimbursements. This site is close to train tracks. Dates would be March 28th - November 5th, 2022.
