Would you enjoy working on a team where you can use your excellent customer service skills and develop hands-on experience in park maintenance and operations? Do you have landscaping or custodial experience, and wonder what it would be like to have a State Park as your office? Would you like to work with a group of dedicated, fun-loving people who are passionate about serving our visitors, protecting special places and providing great experiences?
As a Park Ranger Assistant, you will assist year-round State Park staff in the protection, maintenance, operation and repair of state park lands, natural and cultural resources, structures, facilities, equipment and systems. Park Ranger Assistants typically perform basic tasks in a single area of park operations (e.g.: janitorial work, landscape maintenance, interpretation or visitor services), although some positions will require performing tasks in a variety of areas. Some work may require the most elementary skills in building trades, including carpentry, electrical, plumbing, painting and landscape maintenance. In addition, specialized skills in basic park maintenance and operations may be required. Park Ranger Assistants, on a task specific basis, may guide the work of individuals or teams composed of volunteers, seasonal, and/or temporary state park employees.
If this sounds like you come join our team at Cottonwood Canyon State Park as a Seasonal Park Ranger Assistant. This is the perfect opportunity for anyone looking to start a career at the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department.
