“Seven years ago I was hired at the Society of American Forester’s Convention in Orlando, Florida; today I am part of an amazing team that is coordinating the event.  To say the Recruitment Event at SAF changed my life would be an understatement.”  Leah Rathbun (Forester – Regional Biometrician) hired at the 2009 SAF Convention in Orlando, FL “SAF is a wonderful networking and learning opportunity for any forester, it linked me to a career with the Forest Service. Working for the Forest Service has been challenging and exciting. I have a lot of opportunities to grow and succeed.” Lette Benson (Sale Prep Forester, Big Horn NF) hired at the 2014 SAF Convention in Salt Lake City, UT

The following is the list of positions being included in this hiring event for Region 1 of the Forest Service – North Idaho, Montana, and parts of the Dakotas.  More positions in other areas across the U.S. can be found on the website.
