Superior National Forest Crew Member/Leader
AmeriCorps Superior National Forest Crews (ages 18-25) receive on-the-job training to learn natural resources management skills and put those skills into practice working on projects throughout Superior National Forest. Member positions involve physically challenging, team-oriented outdoor work on conservation projects such as invasive species management, fuels reduction, campsite maintenance, timber stand improvement, trail maintenance, tree planting, timber marking, and wildfire suppression/prescribed burning.
Superior National Forest seasonal crews are part of the Superior National Forest’s “Faces of Tomorrow” initiative, an effort to improve the diversity of their future workforce. Therefore, priority will be given to minorities and under-represented applicants between the ages 18-25. Corpsmembers receive intensive training and on-the-job experience to make them highly competitive for permanent, full-time jobs in the Forest Service following service term completion.
Locations and Term Dates: This is NOT a residential program, but free dormitory/bunkhouse lodging is available if needed. All Corpsmembers are responsible for food and transportation to and from the shop location each day.
