Jackson Lake State Park in Orchard, Colorado is currently seeking applicants for our summer ranger positions.  Please feel free to share this email with fellow departments, students, and graduates who may be interested in working with Colorado Parks & Wildlife.

Jackson Lake is situated in northeastern of Colorado (about 1 hour from Denver), and is known as an “oasis on the plains”. We are recognized for our camping, fishing, boating, and wildlife viewing opportunities.  There are many opportunities as a seasonal ranger to learn new skills, develop an understanding for the job, and create lasting relationships.

We will be accepting applications until February 12th, and conducting interviews in mid-February.  Every applicant will receive an interview.  If the applicant is not local, we will accommodate with a phone or Skype interview.  The start date is typically around April/May.  We also have housing available for those employees who will require a place to stay.

Applications can also be found on our website at: http://cpw.state.co.us/placestogo/parks/JacksonLake/Documents/2017-Jackson-Temporary-Application.pdf
