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.
