COSA Denver Seasonal Park Ranger Posting

Hello parks and recreation colleagues. We are hiring two very specialized and unique park ranger positions to work at Red Rocks Park during concerts, shows, and other events. Red Rocks Park is named for its towering sandstone rock formations along the eastern slope of the Rocky Mountains. The park is home to the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre, considered one of the greatest outdoor music venues in the world. It is also a popular destination for tourists, photographers, exercise buffs, and outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds. Red Rocks Park boasts a 200-mile panoramic view of Denver and plains with hiking trails on which to observe the striking geologic features of the park. This is an amazing opportunity to join a Denver Mountain Parks system that is over 100 years old. Seasonal Park Rangers provide visitor services, protect park resources, and enhance use through enforcement, education, maintenance, work on natural resource projects, and assistance with medical and other incidents. Because our Rangers wear many different hats such as educators, officers, and medics, Rangers need to exercise good judgment and be comfortable with low-key to highly stressful and challenging situations. Working at Red Rocks will give you a bevy of experience. These positions make hundreds of contacts each night while serving both park visitors and concert goers alike. This is a great opportunity to gain hands-on experience working for one the largest and most diverse park systems in the region while serving our communities in a meaningful way!

These are seasonal positions which typically work 39 hours per week but are not eligible for full time City benefits. Our rangers are offered a flexible 4 day/week 10 hours/day schedule. These positions typically work for ten months with possible extensions, depending on budgets and department needs. All applicants should be able to work all holidays and most weekends. During the concert season these positions work from 3:30pm-2am, which qualifies incumbents for an additional 7% evening differential.–Mountain-Parks_R0065229
