The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is hiring foresters, forest techs, and firefighters.
DNR Forest Resources Division Chief Jeff Stampfly said Michigan’s nearly 4 million acres of state forest lands provide clean air and water, materials for a strong forest products industry, and places to hunt, fish, hike, ride, camp and relax.
Firefighters suppress wildland fires, conduct prescribed burns, operate heavy machinery, maintain equipment and assist with forest management activities. Those interested in firefighting can sign up to be a full time, seasonal, or on call firefighter.
Foresters and forest technicians sustainably manage forests, develop forest treatment plans, mark timber, prepare bid packages, evaluate proposals and inspect sites in a mix of outdoor and office settings. Those who are interested can either become a forester or a forest technician.
