Job Overview

GAIN PROFESSIONAL JOB SKILLS, CONTRIBUTE TO CLIMATE RESILIENCE, AND LAUNCH YOUR WILDLAND FIRE CAREER!

The Montana Conservation Corps is looking for a Crew Leader for our Women’s Fuels and Fire Crew based in Grand Teton National Park!  This crew is for anyone who identifies as a woman. We welcome trans applicants who are comfortable in a female-identifying space.  This crew will work with the National Park Service in Grand Teton National Park for the majority of the season.  These partners are extremely invested in the program, and are highly committed to getting participants out on fire after their season, and in future wildland fire careers. Work will primarily consist of wildland fuels mitigation projects with an emphasis on chainsaw use.  Participants will receive basic wildland fire qualifications including a nationally recognized chainsaw certification, basic wildland firefighting classes (S130, S190), in addition to having an opportunity to receive a  wildland fire red card.  There may be opportunities to deploy on fire assignments AFTER the term of service ends.  This is a great opportunity to get exposure to the world of wildland fire, and provides an excellent stepping stone for future career opportunities.  If you are looking for something unique, want to address urgent climate change issues, and want to make a positive impact on the environment, then this is the perfect opportunity for you!
