Conservation Corps accepting applications for summer jobs

Sky-Hi News Staff

Do you love the outdoors? Want to spend your summer outside? How about living, working, and learning in Rocky Mountain National Park and the Arapaho-Roosevelt National Forests while getting paid and earning college credits?

Since 2003, Rocky Mountain Conservancy – Conservation Corps has offered youth (ages 18-25) the opportunity to perform conservation work alongside the National Park Service and U.S. Forest Service in Rocky Mountain National Park and the Arapaho-Roosevelt National Forests. Over the course of the season, participants gain valuable on-the-job experience working with federal land management agencies, learn about the natural and cultural history of the area, and spend the summer working outside with a crew of their peers.

The season is 11 weeks long, and during their time with the Conservation Corps, members receive living stipends, housing, and two college credits. Rocky Mountain Conservancy also provides crew members with boots, work clothing, and gear for the season.

If you are interested in learning more about natural resource work, pursuing a career or degree in the conservation or environmental field, or simply spending your summer working and living in the region’s beautiful public lands, then this is the opportunity for you.

Visit and follow the “Learn With Us” tab to learn more about the program and how to apply. If you have any questions, feel free to call 970-586-3262 or email .
