Job Shadow

Type: Short-term individuals
Dates: Year-round
Status: Open to proposals

Quick summary: An uncommon but significant volunteer opportunity, "job shadow" projects allow students a chance to see what it's like to be a park ranger by following one around for a day. While some jobs are not suitable for these opportunities due to safety concerns, students have, in the past, enjoyed days in the park's visitor centers or helping with winter snow play. Other options include the park's campgrounds or entrance stations, or the maintenance, education, or volunteer programs.

For further information or to propose a job shadow experience: Contact Volunteer Program Manager Kevin Bacher, 360-569-2211 ext. 3385.
