Mesa Verde National Park is the nation’s largest archeological preserve with over 4000 sites and is designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The park’s rich history and culture are reflected in the spectacular cliff dwellings and mesa top pueblo sites occupied from approximately 500 A.D. through 1300 A.D. Twenty-one descendent Native American tribes trace their heritage to those people who occupied the mesa and created the beautiful stone villages we see today. Their legacy is best enjoyed by ranger guided half day interpretive tours and hiking the many and varied trails to traverse stunning sandstone canyons and 100 mile vistas into 4 states from the high elevations (8250 feet).
The ideal candidate will be able to work April - October and will be able to provide the kind of guest experience that will have our visitors returning to us again and again! If you think you are up to the challenge, then apply below to become a part of an award-winning team this summer!
