Grand Teton NP 2023 Wildland Fire Seasonal Vacancy Announcement on USAJOBS

Western, Wyo., October 28, 2022—Winter conditions are settling in over the Bridger Teton National Forest, which means firefighters and fuels crews will soon begin pile burning operations throughout the forest.

Fuels reduction programs, which involve mechanical or hand thinning, remove trees to reduce forest density and improve forest health. Hand piles result from crews using chainsaws to thin the forest and then piling the sawn unmarketable limbs, saplings, and brush.

This season’s pile burning could begin as early as next week (October 31, 2022) and continue through December, depending on weather, fuels conditions and access. Click to read More...
