PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The National Park Service is looking to hire more than 250 people to fill summer job openings in the Pacific Northwest.

The openings are in at least 10 parks in Oregon, Washington and Idaho. Jobs include backcountry rangers, entrance station fee collectors, archaeologists, motor vehicle operators and carpenters.

The pay range for most jobs is $14 to $20 per hour.

Applications must be submitted on the website USAJobs.gov. Listings can be found by searching for "National Park Service" and the name of a state, such as Oregon, on the home page.

Application timelines vary depending on the specific position, and some are open for only a short period. Those interested in finding more information about a specific job are encouraged to contact the national park hosting the position.

"What better way to spend a summer than getting paid to work and live in a national park," said Pacific West Regional Director Laura Joss. "Seasonal jobs are a great way to get your start with the National Park Service, whether you are beginning your career or looking for a change."
