About the job
What do Junior Ranger Crews do?
The Junior Ranger Program is an opportunity for teens ages 14 to 17 years old to be employed by the City of Boulder’s Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) department to work on a variety of natural resource projects. Since 1965, hardworking and dedicated teens work on crews of ten alongside two Crew Leads to complete trail maintenance and construction, forestry, vegetation, and ecological restoration projects. Junior Rangers work outside, earn a paycheck, develop important work skills, explore nature together, work on teams, make lifelong friendships, and give back to our community.
Job Description: Each year the program seeks Crew Leaders (age 18+) to build functional teams, complete trail maintenance, and other natural resource projects, support youth job skills development. Crew Leaders come from a variety of backgrounds in leadership, education, and conservation. They supervise Trail Crews, integrate learning opportunities into their project timelines, facilitate environmental education lessons, support program goals, and receive career development themselves as they work beside project sponsors and attend organized talks and training from OSMP department staff.
Work Season: May 16th - August 18th
