We're not taking a job or two. The Rocky Mountain region has more than 900 seasonal jobs up for grabs with over 100 right here in western Colorado.

September 14th is now the Forrest Service's start date to find the right persons for the right jobs. "Fire, trails, forestry, engineering, wildlife, recreation, fisheries, archeology, multiple of different locations you know anywhere from Grand Junction to Gunnison, to Telluride, Norwood, Montrose, Paonia, we have some here in Delta,” says US Forest Service officer, Michele Schaal.
