    The Pacific Northwest Region of the Forest Service advertises 1,000+ temporary positions throughout National Forests in Oregon and Washington usually in the fall. The positions filled include specialties such as fire, timber, recreation, biological sciences, natural resources, engineering, archaeology and visitor services. Applicants interested in these jobs can apply through during the application window. Employees of the Forest Service are inspired to care for more than 193 million acres of our nation’s tremendous National Forests and Grasslands. Together, we help to meet the needs of people and communities today and ensure that these natural resources remain healthy and productive for future generations. We call this the greatest good, and we’ve been united by this purpose for more than 100 years. It's a tremendous responsibility and there are many opportunities to contribute.
