Join us in the spectacular Wallowa Mountains of northeast Oregon as a Wilderness Ranger Intern/Volunteer! Over 350,000 acres and 500 miles of trails in the Eagle Cap Wilderness provide a variety of landscapes and routes from moderate, low-elevation day hikes to alpine scrambles.
We are recruiting a 2-4-person crew that will work independently and alongside professional USFS Wilderness Rangers. Backcountry and wilderness trips may range from day hikes to 10-day overnight hitches. Interns will primarily work from a remote base camp in the Lakes Basin Management Area.
This opportunity is available from Mid-June to Mid-September. A minimum of a 6-week commitment within this timeframe is required; preference will be given to longer-term applicants.
Housing is available in a bunk house near Wallowa Lake, and reimbursement for food and incidental expenses may be available. Some equipment and uniforms will be provided.
