Volunteer Park Ranger
Crater Lake National Park is seeking volunteers to operate the Steel Visitor Center and lead guided snowshoe walks this fall, winter, and spring. It’s a unique opportunity to live, work, and play in a winter wonderland on the slopes of a sleeping volcano.
Crater Lake National Park preserves the deepest lake in the United States. Today, old-growth forests blanket the volcano's outer slopes, harboring a wide variety of wildlife.
The volunteer will spend about 80% of their time operating the Steel Visitor Center at Park Headquarters, which receives between 0 and 500 visitors daily. The volunteer will spend about 20% of their time preparing and presenting guided snowshoe walks to the public, which are 2 hours long, moderately strenuous, and limited to 30 people per group.
