Position will require hard work and dedication. Sometimes long hours. Interested individuals should be able to listen and follow detailed instructions, ask good questions, and work efficiently. It is also important that you be responsible and consistent. You will be required to work outdoors in all kinds of weather, climb on and off of equipment, and lift 40-50 lbs.

Extra activities: This area has beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Great place to horseback ride and go for long walks. Occasionally Elk come and go from our place, we also have antelope and deer. In the spring the ground will be peppered with beautiful tiny wild flowers. It’s a solid hour from any city, so if you like being in town this will not appeal to you!
