FSPW seeks Summer Project Coordinator

Posted on Wednesday, April 11th, 2012 by »

This position has been filled. Thanks for your interest!

Work (and play) in the Scotchmans this summer!

If you are comfortable in an office as well as the back country and have a love for the wild outdoors, then the Scotchman Peaks straddling the Idaho/Montana border just south of Canada are calling you! The job is part time, and runs from late May through mid-October.

This position is a learning experience. The successful candidate will gain training and valuable insights while in the office and the field into many phases of wilderness advocacy and stewardship, including the politics and history of wilderness, effective public relations, effective social media marketing and networking, website maintenance, hands-on trail work, leadership experience, back-country experience and volunteer recruitment and coordination. This organization places a high emphasis on the successful combination of hard work and fun and achieves great results from both. Expect to be drawn into and welcomed by the culture of Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness. It will be a summer you will not likely soon forget.
