Have Experience with Surveying or GIS?

The Longmire Stewardship Campground was a favorite of park visitors from the mid-1920s until the 1980s.  Now, it is “home-base” for hundreds of volunteers and park partners each year, exclusively.  Many projects recently have involved work in and around the campground area, and now we are seeking an outstanding volunteer with a very special set of skills.  We are looking to upgrade our maps of the campground from the current hand drawn version to a much more accurate and aesthetically pleasing version.   
Brief Job Description:  Survey the features of the Longmire Stewardship Campground and create a map to be used by the general public and Park Service Employees.
  • Plot key points around the campground, including campsites, fire pits, electrical hook-ups, etc.
  • Include adjoining trails and roads
  • Map the perimeter of the campground
  • Create a user-friendly map to be used by volunteers, partners, coordinators, and the National
Park Service
Anticipated Results:  The end product will be a more practical and useable map of the Stewardship Campground.
  • Experience with mapping and surveying programs and processes
  • Ability to work independently or in a small group
  • Physical ability to hike the entire campground area
  • Free park entry for the entire duration of the project
  • Availability of Longmire Campground for the length of the surveying, including night prior to beginning and day following completion
