    Forest Service taking applications for permanent seasonal jobs
    • October 18, 2023

    Looking to earn some money while basking in the great outdoors?

    The USDA Forest Service has your number.

    The federal agency is accepting applications for permanent seasonal jobs between Thursday, Oct. 19 and Nov. 22. There are hundreds of entry-level forestry-technician and forestry-aid positions available across the U.S., including 307 openings in California.

    The Forest Service manages more than 193 million acres of forest and grasslands, and the jobs are as diverse as the landscapes it manages. Forestry aids and technicians work in a variety of natural resource and recreation functions and can help reduce the threat of wildfires while improving habitats for wildlife, decreasing the spread of invasive plant species and enhancing visitor experiences.
