All full-time employees are required to take first aid/CPR, and must be approved to drive University of Idaho vehicles. Beyond that, the primary qualification is a love of working in the woods.

Student Logging Crew

For 40 years, the University of Idaho Student Logging Crew has played an important role in the management of the Experimental Forest while providing hands-on educational opportunities for undergraduate forestry students interested in learning about basic chainsaw limbing, felling, bucking and skidding methods.

Forest Technicians

Working on the Experimental Forest gives you the opportunity to work in forest inventory, silviculture, forest operations, management planning and forest stewardship while in school. Funded research projects provide a variety of additional job opportunities for undergraduate research technicians working with faculty and graduate students on the forest.
