Public History in Action

The National Park Service has announced temporary summer employment at the Isle Royal National Park.  While the island lies quite a few miles off the coast of the Keweenaw Peninsula, this is still a great opportunity for anyone looking to partake in the preservation and interpretation of the area’s wildlife and natural history.  The announcements are closing soon so please go to USA Jobs and search Isle Royal.  You will see listings for park rangers (both interpretation and protection), visitor use assistants, and other unique positions.  The duty locations for these positions are either at the Houghton office site or the actual Isle Royal park on the island.  The Houghton office is within walking distance of many great restaurants, shops, and attractions and Isle Royal itself is home to all sorts of wild animals, gorgeous hardwoods, and spectacular views of Lake Superior.  What a great way to spend a fun summer in the Copper Country!
