I wrapped up my third season at the front desk with the Forest Service, in Idaho City, on the Boise National Forest. As expected, it was exciting and rewarding. I was introduced to the enormous opportunities this land offers and the demands of a diverse public. Hesitantly, I declined a GS-04 seasonal 1039 position with the ICRD as I had been facing difficult family matters.
Typically, I greeted people from all over the world along with a cohesive group of passionate, fact driven, hard-working co-workers. Tolerant, generous and smart.
General office work; pick up and sort mail, answer and screen phone calls, camping/cabin rentals and permit sales, stock pamphlets, daily check-in and update wildfire information.
