Park aides sign on for adventure, hard work
Washington State Parks employs approximately 400 park aides and 45 senior park aides per season. They work in the desert, in forests, by rivers, lakes and the ocean and in historically significant locations. They help rangers and maintenance staff; they participate in interpretive and education programs; they do housekeeping for cabin, yurt and vacation house rentals, and they enforce Discover Pass compliance. Every day is different, and they rarely sit still for long.
