The nonprofit stewards of public land in Southern Colorado.
RMFI is a 40-year old nonprofit environmental stewardship organization based in Colorado Springs, Colorado. We engage the community in the care and protection of public lands in Southern Colorado and the Pikes Peak region by completing trail and restoration projects in parks, open spaces, national forests, and wilderness areas. We are creating a community of public land stewards and would love to have you join us!
We want employees who are passionate about the outdoors and want to play a hands-on role in their care and protection. Employees can expect to spend most of their days outdoors in some of the most beautiful landscapes Colorado has to offer. You'll work as a trail crew with a team of 4-6 other RMFI staff, help oversee diverse community volunteers, and also oversee youth conservation crews from the Mile High Youth Corps. Expect long hours of physical labor, yet rewarding labor, making memories and friendships that will last a lifetime.
Pro deals, paid sick time, training, and belonging to a community of like-minded environmental stewards. On all backcountry hitches, we provide all food and gear.
Someone who works hard and plays hard. We need and want passionate people who are committed to public lands stewardship and hard work, appreciate attention to detail, understand the importance of following through, and who desire to make an impact. We want people who want to be part of a team, who love to laugh, and who, to their core, love the outdoors, nature, Colorado, and public lands, and want to do everything they can to protect and conserve them.
There are options to room with other colleagues, as well as short term rental options in Colorado Springs.
