Greater Sage-Grouse

The landscape and culture of the Interior West are characterized by the iconic sagebrush steppe ecosystems that are valued and used by people with a long and deep connection to the land. A need and desire has been identified to create a new balance between the use and protection of this landscape to conserve its important attributes, including greater sage-grouse. We have involved a multi-faceted effort that includes both planning and on-the-ground projects across multiple states. We have come together through working groups, task forces, councils, and meetings with the public, Tribes, state and federal agencies, counties, and associations. Visit the Greater Sage Grouse page to view the latest on the conservation effort.


The Forest Service offers many different employment opportunities throughout the year.  There are many positions advertised and filled for seasonal and temporary work every year.  Visit the forest Jobs and Volunteering web page to learn more about the work we do, as well as what seasonal positions are currently available for each forest.  The PACFISH/INFISH Biological Opinion Monitoring Program also advertises for Riparian Vegetation Survey Technicians and Fish/Stream Habitat and Morphology Technicians every year.



Every Kid in the Park

Every Kid in the Park Logo

The Every Kid in a Park initiative allows fourth graders to go to the Every Kid in the Park web site and obtain a pass for free entry for them and their families to more than 2,000 federally managed lands and waters for an entire year starting September 1, 2015.

Children can discover their public lands and all they offer. As living classrooms, these outdoor places and historic sites also provide hands-on, real-world opportunities to develop critical skills and learn more about the natural world.

The Forest Service (not vendors) will offer one free holiday tree cutting permit to fourth graders who present a valid pass. Offices that do not issue holiday tree permits or who have already issued their allotted number of permits are exempt from this program. Check with your local Forest Service Office.
