The Marienville Ranger District is located in Marienville, PA and the Bradford Ranger District is located in Marshburg, PA.  The 513,000-acre Forest is the only national forest in Pennsylvania and lies within a day's drive of 1/3 of the Nation's population.  It includes two Wilderness areas, two National Scenic Areas, two National Wild and Scenic Rivers, and the Tionesta Research Natural Area (the largest contiguous tract of old growth forest in Pennsylvania).  A variety of recreation activities include boating, camping, hunting, fishing, ATV riding and snowmobiling that result in about 4 million recreation visitor days annually.  The 12,000-acre Allegheny Reservoir provides boating, camping, and fishing opportunities.   Roughly, 1/3 of the world's supply of black cherry furniture veneer is grown on the Allegheny National Forest, resulting in a profitable timber program.  Abundant fish and wildlife provide a variety of hunting, fishing, and viewing opportunities.  The changing colors of the hardwood leaves each fall provide spectacular views.



Warren and the surrounding communities of Bradford, Kane, Ridgway, Marienville, and Tidioute are located in northwestern Pennsylvania.  Main access to Warren is US Route 62 from the north or south and US Route 6 from the east or west.  The area's climate provides a classic display of the four distinct seasons.  Summers are warm and moderately humid with average temperatures of 75 to 80 degrees.  Fall provides panoramic views as the foliage turns spectacular colors of yellow, red and purple.  Springtime brings alive the many blooming wild flowers and other natural vegetation.  The winters are moderate with average temperatures of 20 to 25 degrees.  Annual precipitation is about 40 inches.


Downtown Warren is currently undergoing a revitalization effort.

The most important aspect of this list is that it is for one purpose only.: announcing jobs/non paying volunteer postings in the international CRM field at all levels; Field Tech, Professors, SHPO's, etc...  Caveat Emptor though my friends.  Not all jobs pay the same, nor is their treatment of employees the same - as the companies are checking your references, you should also check them out - make sure they pay fair wages, treat their employees professionally, and do quality work.  If you have at least a BA you deserve fair remuneration, so ask for it, and in turn you provide your employer with excellent service.   You ARE a trained professional, NOT a "shovelbum"  - the name is in jest - act professional, expect to be treated like one.
