DCNR Now Hiring Young Adults For PA Outdoor Corps Crews In Locations Around PA

The Pennsylvania Outdoor Corps is now hiring for its 10-month young adult crews. Running March 4 to December 6, 2019, the program aims to introduce young people to careers in the outdoors.
2019 crew locations are: Altoona; Harrisburg; Meadville; Philadelphia; St. Marys; Uniontown; Wilkes-Barre; and Williamsport.
Community crew members meet at a central location in their program cities to be transported to and from work sites daily.
In addition to the community-based crews, a statewide roving crew will be established out of Harrisburg.
The roving crew will be deployed across the commonwealth for eight days at a time while working on natural resource management projects. This crew will camp in parks and forests while completing projects.
Positions are open to individuals ages 18 to 25 by the March 4, 2019, program start date. Typical work days are Monday through Thursday, from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Members are paid more than $12.00/hour and receive health benefits, including dental and vision.
Most work and activities take place outdoors in all seasons and weather and involve physically demanding labor.
Projects include, but are not limited to, trail maintenance, habitat restoration, vegetation management, facility maintenance, and light construction.
Members also participate in education and training activities related to natural resource management, environmental topics, and recreation skills.
Additional information, including instructions for how to apply, are available at the Student Conservation Association (SCA) website. Upon completing the SCA application, please send an email to: to let them know that you are interested.
