The Student Ranger Program is now accepting applications for the 2019 season.
This program aims at providing 48 young adults with training and employment within B.C. parks, with a 30% Indigenous hiring target.
“The student rangers play a key role in environmental stewardship while preserving the natural, cultural and historical values that British Columbians cherish,” said George Heyman, Minister of Environment and Climate Change Strategy.
Employees will focus on a variety of projects such as ecosystem restoration, invasive species control, trail building and maintenance and outdoor education.
For the 2019 season, 12 crews of four student rangers will work in regions throughout the province including Prince George, Fort St. John, Terrace, Bella Coola, Williams Lake, Manning Park, Cranbrook, Kamloops, Victoria (Goldstream Provincial Park), Black Creek (Miracle Beach Provincial Park), North Vancouver (Mount Seymour Provincial Park) and Sechelt (Porpoise Bay Provincial Park).
