Description

The Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District (Midpen) Seasonal Ranger Aide is an entry-level position, which provides the opportunity to learn and perform some duties of a ranger under the guidance of experienced ranger staff. Ranger Aides provide visitor information and assistance, travelling by non-emergency Midpen vehicles and on foot throughout an assigned geographical region. Ranger Aides educate and inform the public about Midpen land use regulations, but do not have law enforcement authority.  Ranger Aides will assist with routine maintenance work on Midpen land and facilities and may respond to emergency calls.  Please read the Job Description for additional information about Ranger Aide duties on the Midpen website.

Midpen is a regional greenbelt system in the Santa Cruz Mountain region comprised of over 65,000 acres of land in 26 open space preserves, protected for public enjoyment and recreation. As a small organization that’s mission driven, every employee at Midpen makes an impact. If you are looking for a challenging opportunity to contribute to the legacy of open space preservation, we invite you to apply.

Basic Job Requirements: Must have the ability to educate and inform the public about Midpen lands, pertinent laws and regulations; administer first aid and CPR; operate and maintain various power tools and equipment; operate two-way radios; communicate clearly and concisely both orally and in writing; and other duties as assigned.

Once trained, Ranger Aides may work alone for parts or all of their shifts. Must wear prescribed District uniform and adhere to strict safety procedures and work habits.
