Nestled in the High Cascades of Western Oregon, and bordered by the beautiful Fish Lake, you will find the Fish Lake Guard Station. The Station is a Forest Service administrative building group constructed in the early 1900s, and was in regular use between then and the 1960s. During its formal life span, it served as a guard station, fire headquarters, and remount station. It hosts 18 historic buildings, structures, and sites, as well as two non-historic buildings and other structures and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). This year's PIT volunteers will receive some initial training and orientation to the Fish Lake compound, its history, and that of the local area, then wqe'll turn you loose, and rely on your friendly faces and people-skills as you welcome visitors, provide information, and answer questions about the GS and its use over the past 100 plus years! During your hours "off the clock," this is a fantastic place for walks, hikes, fishing, wildlife (and people) viewing and much more! We will only take applications untill all slots are filled, though, so apply today - we hope to see you for another great season at Fish Lake Guard Station!
