Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites
Seasonal & Part-time Interpreters
Each spring/summer Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites hires seasonal and part-time interpreters to conduct interpretive programs and recreational activities for park visitors. A seasonal interpreter's responsibilities include leading hikes or tours, conducting nature programs and campfire programs, leading games and other recreational activities and conducting a Junior Ranger Day Camp for children. 

Part-time interpreters conduct interpretive programs and recreational programs as well as planning and coordinating special events and working with visiting school groups.  Part-time positions are year-round with fewer work hours during the winter months.


Training: All new interpreters are required to attend a three-day orientation May 20-22, 2014 at Little Ocmulgee State Park near McRae, Georgia. Lodging and meals are provided at the three-day training. 

Benefits: The pay rate for seasonal and part-time interpretive staff is $9-$10/hour. Some sites have free housing available at the Park — refer to the availability chart.

Requirements: Applicants must have completed college or have at least a Junior standing in an appropriate field of study. Areas of study that would be most appropriate include Outdoor Recreation and Interpretation, Environmental Education, Natural Resources, Biology/Ecology, History or other related field. Previous experience is desired. Applicants must have strong communication skills and be able to work independently.
