SUMMER FISHERIES AND LIMNOLOGY Crater Lake National Park in southern Oregon is hiring fisheries and lake research seasonal positions for summer 201

Crater Lake National Park consists of 183,000 acres at elevations of 4,500 to 9,000 feet in the Cascade Range of southern Oregon.  The centerpiece of the park is Crater Lake, which was formed when ancestral Mt. Mazama collapsed following an eruption over 7,000 years ago.  The lake is renowned for its depth, clarity and deep blue color.  The rest of the park consists of several coniferous forest types, barren pumice areas, sub alpine meadows, rocky ridges and peaks, and numerous perennial streams.  The park has long snowy winters (over 500 inches of snowfall each winter) and is well known for the depth and scenic beauty of the winter snow pack.  Summer and fall in the park are brief but spectacular, and feature temperate conditions and generally fair weather, with occasional thunderstorms.  Groceries and basic amenities are available in local communities of Chiloquin and Prospect.  All amenities are available in the large towns of Klamath Falls and Medford.

These are temporary, full time positions, not to exceed 6 months (1039 hours) in a service year.  Anticipated date to enter on duty is June 16, 2014.  The NPS expects to fill 1-4 positions at this time.
