JOB SUMMARY: Experience your America and build a fulfilling career by joining the National Park Service. Become a part of our mission to unite our past, our cultures and our special places, to establish important connections to the present and build a rich and lasting legacy for future generations.
Yosemite National Park, California, known worldwide for its spectacular natural beauty is the backdrop for this position. Sitting astride the Sierra Nevada Mountains, the park covers 1,182 square miles of varied wilderness ecosystems, from river valleys to alpine meadows to lofty 13,000 foot high peaks.
Yosemite Valley is located 208 miles from San Francisco, 81 miles from Merced, and 94 miles from Fresno. Shopping, dental, medical, postal and laundry services are available in the park. Elevation at the Valley floor is approximately 4000 feet. The park is open year-round with the majority of activities occurring during the busy season from March through October.
The Human Resources Office (HRO) which serves Yosemite is located in El Portal (which means ‘Gateway’ in Spanish). El Portal, a tiny community in the Merced River canyon, dates back to the early 1900s when, in 1907, a railroad terminus was completed to serve the growing tourist business, and later the lumber and mining interest. The railroad is long gone, but El Portal survives in its old houses, post office and beautiful canyon surroundings. Two positions currently exist that are permanent full-time.
