The National Park Foundation and Carhartt are looking to fill more than 500 Service Corps jobs across United States national parks this summer, said NPF and Carhartt in a news release on Friday.

More visitors to Washington state national parks and climate change have created a need for workers at Washington’s Youth Conservation Corps and Northwest Youth Corps to handle conservation projects at parks like Mount Rainier National Park, said the release.

Hundreds of workers are in extreme demand at some of the nation’s most historical sites like Joshua Tree, Grand Teton, and Pictured Rocks National Parks. Jobs range from field crew members, trail maintenance workers, invasive plant workers, logistics coordinators, and everything in between, said the release.

A study from Carhartt that came out in February showed that nearly half of Gen Z and Millenials would prefer to work outdoors over a traditional office job.

The study also found that 85% of Gen Z and Millenials are somewhat open to jobs in nature conservation or the outdoors and 74% feel climate change and/or the environment is a top concern for current and future generations.

44% of Gen Z and Millennials said “finding a job that aligns with my values” was a top challenge in today’s job market.
