The U.S. Forest Service is planning to hire more than 600 temporary employees to work in the Rocky Mountain Region.

The Loveland Reporter-Herald reports the jobs will include fire protection, trail management, forestry, engineering, wildlife, recreation, fisheries, archaeology and administrative support work.

The application period will be Jan. 7 through Jan. 14 for wildland fire positions and other early season, non-fire temporary positions; early February for most non-fire temporary positions in recreation, fisheries, forestry and engineering; and early March for other positions.

Regional forester Daniel J. Jiron says "temporary employees perform crucial work and serve a diverse group of users during the peak summer months."

The positions are at 17 national forests and seven national grasslands in Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wyoming.
