*Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest*

The Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest is located in the beautiful Upper

a million and a half acres. The Chequamegon side of the forest covers about
858,400 acres in Ashland, Bayfield, Sawyer, Price, Taylor, and Vilas
counties while the Nicolet side covers nearly 661,400 acres in Florence,
Forest, Langlade, Oconto, Oneida, and Vilas counties.

Renowned for its four seasons of natural beauty, it is home to a diverse
array of northern hardwoods, pines, and meadows. It is bountiful with
lakes, rivers, and streams. Areas of highlands overlook the surrounding
landscapes. The area offers trails for snowmobiles, cross-country skiing,
hiking, mountain biking, horseback and ATV riding.

The Wisconsin Northwoods have been the destination of recreationists and
vacationers for over a century, with its abundant opportunities for
fishing, biking, hunting, camping, hiking, skiing, boating, birding, and
cultural resource sights and attractions. Located 300-450 miles north of
Chicago, the Northwoods weather is characterized by generally pleasant
summers of warm days and cool nights, perfect for enjoying the abundant
lakes, camping sites, canoeing and kayaking rivers. The fall season is
generally cool and dominated by great panoramas of color. The winters
generally offer plentiful snowfalls, cold temperatures, and great
opportunities to frequently snowshoe, ski, and snowmobile.

*Community Descriptions:*

The following are descriptions for the local communities of the potential
duty stations for the Great Divide and Washburn Ranger District positions.

*Glidden, Wisconsin*

The unincorporated town of Glidden, in southern Ashland County, calls
itself the Black Bear Capital of the World and offers a reward for anyone
bringing in a bigger bear than the 665-pound bruin that was shot near town
in 1963. That bear is now stuffed and displayed in a glass-enclosed case
near one of the downtown gas stations.

Glidden has many picturesque recreational areas, like Marian Park, a
historical treasure with its wonderfully old eight-sided pavilion
constructed of virgin hemlock, pine and hundreds of windows. It’s listed
in the National Register of Historic Places.
Glidden's hunting and fishing, along with its snowmobile and ATV trails,
are among the best in northern Wisconsin. The Natural Scenic Byway, which
runs from Glidden to Clam Lake through the Forest, offers splendid
scenery. A good time to visit is in the fall, when the surrounding forest
is its showiest. You might even catch a glimpse of Wisconsin’s elk herd.
* *
*Hayward, Wisconsin*
* *
The tourist destination city of Hayward in Sawyer
County<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sawyer_County,_Wisconsin>has a
population of 2,129. Hayward is a community rich in history,
culture <http://www.haywardareachamber.com/events.html>,

*Washburn, Wisconsin*

Surrounded by forest, the city of Washburn nestles on the shore of Lake
Superior's historic Chequamegon Bay in northernmost Wisconsin. With
unparalleled outdoor recreation opportunities, a vibrant cultural life, and
a progressive atmosphere, Washburn is great place to live, a rewarding
place to do business, and a spectacular place to visit.

Washburn hosts a variety of options for outdoor enthusiasts. Washburn's
proximity to the Apostle Islands allows for a quick getaway to one of our
nation's most pristine treasures. Also located on the District is Mt.
Valhalla Recreation Area. Valhalla has a chalet with fire pit and tables
for large groups or family gatherings.

Washburn is nestled between Ashland to the south and Bayfield to the

Bayfield is the jumping off point for the Apostle Islands National
Lakeshore.

*About Land Between The Lakes*

The LBL Protection Act, which legislatively transferred the management of
LBL from the Tennessee Valley Authority to the Forest Service, codifies the
original mission of LBL and promotes the continuation of the national
demonstration mandate. LBL is a leader among NRAs in cost recovery, and
the legislation allows all site-generated revenue to continue to be used in
support of LBL's operation. LBL also has a comprehensive customer-driven
business system and culture that focuses staff and financial resources on
customer and agency priorities.

The mission of LBL is to manage the resources for optimum yield of outdoor
recreation and environmental education for the American people by utilizing
its demonstration assignment to research, test, and demonstrate innovative
programs; to help stimulate the development of the surrounding region; and
to extend the beneficial results as widely as possible.

LBL’s continuing objectives are to:

· Manage and use the resources of the area to afford maximum
opportunities for outdoor recreation and environmental education consistent
with ecological considerations;
· Provide outdoor recreation programs, services, and facilities
responsive to leisure needs and demands and to demonstrate opportunities;

*Organization of Opportunity*

There are some exciting and creative opportunities available at Land
Between The Lakes (LBL) National Recreation Area (NRA) for the uniquely
energetic and innovative individual who is has a positive attitude and is
looking for a challenge!

*Leading in Innovation. *LBL is a congressionally designated national
demonstration area. We are tasked to explore, develop and test innovative
and creative approaches to management and to export successful initiatives
to other organizations, agencies and the public. Creativity,
open-mindedness and being an informed reasonable risk-taker are key
ingredients for success. To thrive, you must be willing not only to think
“outside the box”, you must be willing to comfortably and assertively
challenge the very notion there is a box!

*Promoting Change. * You will never be an integral part of the LBL team by
not accepting change—you must pro-actively lead and promote change. “We’ve
always done it that way” is an antiquated, archaic phrase that is totally
foreign to LBL vocabulary. “Let’s try it” is the LBL motto. We expect a
consistent flow of new ideas and approaches to traditional problems to be
one of the key traits you bring to the team.

*Blended Cultures. *The LBL philosophy holds that no one organization,
agency or individual has the right way to do everything. One of LBL’s many
strengths is that it is comprised of a mix of people with traditional
Forest Service backgrounds; backgrounds and experiences from other
government agencies; and backgrounds and experiences from the private
sector. By exploring all options and avenues and using the best ideas from
any and every available source, LBL is a Mecca for government
transformation and is ripe to eradication stale process predicament.

*Promoting Teamwork. *To be a successful member of the LBL team, it is
imperative that you value and honor the culture, heritage and experiences
of each and every team mate and be a positive influence to help blend these
aforementioned unique talents into one highly skilled and motivated team.

*Data Accumulation and Utilization*. One of the many things that sets LBL
apart from other government agencies is our ability to collect,
consolidate, analyze and use hard data to make sound business decisions. We
at LBL wholeheartedly believe true business is a relatively controlled
science. Figures are facts and facts are figures. The numbers do not lie.
Sound management decisions based on solid data are far superior to the
instinct, emotions and historical baggage of leaders who might happen to be
involved with any given decision.

*Customer Focus. *If you’re driven by rules and regulations, or even if
you’re driven by products, you’ll be miserable at LBL. We live to serve
the customer. The data is collected, consolidated, analyzed and used to
serve the customers. The facilities are here to serve the customer. The
funds are allocated or collected to serve the customer. If you are here,
you are here to serve the customer and for no other reason.
*About the Area*

Nestled in the gently rolling hills and lakes of Western Kentucky and
Tennessee, the communities that surround LBL offer a variety of lifestyles
and modern conveniences, close proximity to major metropolitan areas, and
the best features of small town America.

The region is largely farmland interspersed with woodlands, lakes, and
streams. The climate is mild, but with four distinct seasons. The
surrounding communities range in population from 1,200 to 50,000 and offer
a variety of recreation, family attractions, restaurants, shopping, and
southern hospitality. Arts and entertainment opportunities include
concerts, drama, exhibits, lectures, sporting events, festivals, arts and
crafts shows, museums, horse racing and much more. Particularly notable
are the area's bluegrass festivals, barbecue, antiques, and nationally
acclaimed golf courses. Outdoor recreation abounds with the two giant
lakes that border LBL as the centerpiece. In addition to some of the best
hunting and fishing in the country, there are also myriad opportunities for
biking, hiking, horseback riding, OHVing, camping, birding, and an array of
water sports. The area is rich in history including civil war forts, the
Trail of Tears, and historic communities. Cultural diversity is evident
due partly to the presence of nearby Murray State University, Fort
Campbell, and many international companies.

The larger county seats near LBL include Paducah, Murray, Hopkinsville, and
Cadiz, Kentucky; and Clarksville, Dover, and Paris, Tennessee. Residents
enjoy housing costs that are well below the national average, low taxes, a
low crime rate, progressive medical care, excellent public and private
education systems, and active community organizations. Murray State
University, Austin Peay State University, and two community colleges offer
higher education opportunities and many cultural activities. These
attributes lead to the lakes region being named among the top retirement
areas by Rand McNally in recent years.

LBL is centrally located, easily accessible by I-24 and within two hours of
Nashville, a few hours of St. Louis, Evansville, Louisville, and Memphis,
and a day's drive of Chicago, Atlanta, Detroit, and Kansas City.

*REGION:* The Pacific Southwest Region is comprised of 18 national forests
with a combined size of over 20 million acres, or approximately one fifth
of California’s land base, which is located in the North Coast, Cascade,
and Sierra Nevada ranges and from Big Sur to the Mexican border in the
South Coast range.

*FOREST: *The Modoc National Forest is a land of contrasts and unspoiled
vacation-hideaway settings. Nestled in the extreme northeastern corner of
California, the Modoc National Forest is mountains, pine forests and
meadows, lakes, streams, rugged canyons, wetlands, lava beds and high
desert plateaus. The Modoc offers you beautiful scenery, varied terrain,
abundant wildlife and a memorable visitor experience. For further
information on the forest, please see www.fs.usda.gov/modoc

*COMMUNITY: *The Doublehead Ranger District Office is located in Tulelake,
CA. Tulelake is a farming community with a population of 1000, which is
situated at an elevation of 4,034 feet. The climate is mild with rainfall
averaging 11 inches per year. The town has a post office, grocery store,
which also serves as a gasoline station, hardware store, bank, automobile
parts stores, a satellite Department of Motor Vehicles office, restaurant,
fast food stand, a small medical clinic, and county library office. The
public schools provide instruction from kindergarten through high school.
Tulelake is also located six miles from Merrill, Oregon, which is a small
thriving community with amenities, while Klamath Falls, Oregon is the
nearest big city 25 miles north of Tulelake, CA. In Klamath Falls there are
the large shopping malls, banks, law offices, medical centers, hospital,
community and technical colleges, public schools, restaurants, art
galleries, museums, marina, movie theater, airport, train station, bus
terminal, and other businesses. For more information go to website:
http://www.visittulelake.com/

Separated from the more heavily populated and intensively used areas of the
Sacramento Valley by the main Sierra Nevada mountain ranges, the Modoc lies
in the extreme northeast corner of California. The topography is diverse,
ranging from the forested Warner Mountain range in the east, to the high
plateaus dominated by sage steppe and ancient lava flows around Alturas,
and culminating at the *Medicine
Highlands*<http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/modoc/specialplaces/?cid=stelprdb5313077>(the
largest shield volcano in North America) in the west.

The high desert climate in the valley areas consists of four distinct
seasons and an average precipitation of 13 inches, a large part of which
comes in the form of snow during the winter months of December to March.

Elevation levels in the Modoc range from 9,906 feet at Eagle Peak in the *South
Warner Wilderness*<http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/modoc/specialplaces/?cid=stelprdb5313076>,
to 4,000 feet in the valleys.

The ponderosa pine and its sister, the Jeffrey pine, are the dominant trees
of the Modoc. These pines cover the gentler slopes of the Warner Mountains,
the entire western half of the Forest, the north end of the *Devil’s
Garden*<http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/modoc/specialplaces/?cid=stelprdb5313078>section,
and the ranges extending south. Mixed in the stands of ponderosa
and Jeffrey pine is white fir, which continues on to higher elevations than
the pines. Sugar pine trees are also found in the northwestern part of the
forest, and lodgepole pine can be found in the higher elevations of the
Modoc.
The Modoc’s remote location ensures recreational visitors a quiet, peaceful
experience away from the crowded trails and campgrounds of the Sierra
Nevada forests. A backpacker can go days or weeks without seeing another
human while visiting the South Warner Wilderness. Views from the Summit
Trail in the wilderness extend from the snow-capped peaks of the northern
Sierra Nevadas and Cascades, to the Black Rock Desert in northwestern
Nevada. Auto tours and scenic byways also offer great scenery for those
less adventuresome.

The position will be filled using USA Jobs website located at
http://www.usajobs.gov .

Jackson at (530) 252-6400.

Separated from the more heavily populated and intensively used areas of the
Sacramento Valley by the main Sierra Nevada mountain ranges, the Modoc lies
in the extreme northeast corner of California. The topography is diverse,
ranging from the forested Warner Mountain range in the east, to the high
plateaus dominated by sage steppe and ancient lava flows around Alturas,
and culminating at the *Medicine
Highlands*<http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/modoc/specialplaces/?cid=stelprdb5313077>(the
largest shield volcano in North America) in the west.

The high desert climate in the valley areas consists of four distinct
seasons and an average precipitation of 13 inches, a large part of which
comes in the form of snow during the winter months of December to March.

Elevation levels in the Modoc range from 9,906 feet at Eagle Peak in the *South
Warner Wilderness*<http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/modoc/specialplaces/?cid=stelprdb5313076>,
to 4,000 feet in the valleys.

The ponderosa pine and its sister, the Jeffrey pine, are the dominant trees
of the Modoc. These pines cover the gentler slopes of the Warner Mountains,
the entire western half of the Forest, the north end of the *Devil’s
Garden*<http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/modoc/specialplaces/?cid=stelprdb5313078>section,
and the ranges extending south. Mixed in the stands of ponderosa
and Jeffrey pine is white fir, which continues on to higher elevations than
the pines. Sugar pine trees are also found in the northwestern part of the
forest, and lodgepole pine can be found in the higher elevations of the
Modoc.
The Modoc’s remote location ensures recreational visitors a quiet, peaceful
experience away from the crowded trails and campgrounds of the Sierra
Nevada forests. A backpacker can go days or weeks without seeing another
human while visiting the South Warner Wilderness. Views from the Summit
Trail in the wilderness extend from the snow-capped peaks of the northern
Sierra Nevadas and Cascades, to the Black Rock Desert in northwestern
Nevada. Auto tours and scenic byways also offer great scenery for those
less adventuresome.

The position will be filled using USA Jobs website located at
http://www.usajobs.gov .

For more information about the position contact Patrol Captain Duane
Jackson at (530) 252-6400.

The Verde River flows through the entire district; Horseshoe and Bartlett
reservoirs are located here. It includes a mixed urban interface in North
Scottsdale and the communities of Carefree and Cave Creek with luxury
homes, historic sites and scattered developments. The District also
experiences high levels of recreation activity along the Verde River and
associated reservoirs. Additionally the rugged terrain in the vast back
country of the Cave Creek Ranger District includes a portion of the
Mazatzal and Pine Mountain Wilderness areas as well as lands accessible by
backcountry visitors via “jeep” trails, with hiking, horseback riding,
camping and other recreation opportunities.

Topography varies from 1590 feet at Needle Rock in the Sonoran Desert to
7873 feet on Mazatzal Peak.

The primary administrative site for the Cave Creek Ranger District is
located 6.5 miles northeast of Carefree and approximately 30 miles north of
Phoenix, Arizona.
* *
*The Community:*

The neighboring towns of Cave Creek and Carefree rub shoulders along Cave
Creek Road. Cave Creek has the history, saloons, library, and a frontier
town atmosphere. Carefree has the supermarket, the Sundial, and homes for
the rich and famous.

The communities share schools, fire department and chamber of commerce and
provide all basic services including gas, groceries, bookstores,
restaurants, hardware stores, novelty shops, drugstores, and a variety of
churches. If you want a larger variety, it is an easy ½ hour drive into
Phoenix and Scottsdale.

Our current office opened in October 1997 at the Wildcat Administrative
Site at the junction of Cave Creek Road and Bartlett Dam Road,
approximately 8 miles from the center of Carefree. Our district office is
a leased modular with a visitor area, offices, restrooms, and lunchroom.
The warehouse complex on the site provides storage, showers, laundry, and a
drive in area to service and/or load vehicles as well as offices for field
going personnel, a kitchen area, restrooms, and large meeting room. We
also have a corral and barn which we share with the County Sheriff’s
Department

Government housing is not available.
* *
*Weather and Seasons:*

As the locals say, there are 2 seasons here…Hot and not so hot. “But it’s
a DRY heat!”

Winters are cool and windy at times, usually ranging around the 50’s and
60’s as highs and 40’s as lows. Occasionally, there will be a dusting of
snow at the district office and even into parts of Scottsdale, but it
rarely stays more than 3 or 4 hours. Snow may stay longer on the north end
of the district.

Spring rains bring out the wildflowers and everything “greens up” after the
winter browns. Temperatures can get into the 80’s by mid February and stay
there for a few months. By June, temperatures usually hit the low hundreds
and vary between heat waves until the end of summer, which, if lucky,
happens by early October. The monsoon season of July and August can get
very muggy with storms floating in each afternoon. Temperatures can reach
120°, but usually remain between 100° and 110°.

Precipitation averages less than seven inches per year at lower elevations
and ranges up to 15 inches or more at higher elevations. The district has
two periods of precipitation during the year. The largest amount occurs in
the winter season between December and March, and the summer monsoons,
which often start about the middle of June.

In autumn, nights get cool very quickly after the sun sets, but days can
remain in the 90’s. The low humidity of the desert makes these higher
temperatures bearable, but can also make the 70’s very chilly. Warm coats
are often worn from November through January, especially since your body
adjusts very quickly to the warmer temperatures of summer. Arizona natives
often say they don’t come alive until it reaches 105°!

The Olympic National Forest will soon be filling a GS-0470-9/11 Forest Soil
Scientist position. This position will be part of the Forest Aquatics Team
and will cover the soils needs across the Olympic National Forest. This is
a permanent full-time position. The duty station will either be located at
the Olympic National Forest Supervisor’s Office in Olympia, WA; the Hood
Canal Ranger District Office in Quilcene, WA; or the Pacific Ranger
District Office in Forks, WA. Only one position will be filled.

The purpose of this Outreach Notice is to inform prospective applicants of
this upcoming opportunity and to determine interest in the position.

*Major Duties of the Position*
The primary duties will be soils support to Forest and District projects
via collection of field data, participation on interdisciplinary teams,
preparing resource reports for NEPA documents, providing expertise on
implementation issues that arise, and monitoring the effectiveness of
mitigation measures. Typical issues include soil productivity, slope
stability, and erosion control. Incumbent will provide support to a wide
variety of land management projects. Primary emphasis areas will include
commercial thinning, road management, and watershed restoration projects.
Incumbent will implement appropriate soils monitoring protocols and
maintain the Forest soils inventory information.

In addition to having a strong technical proficiency, a key consideration
in being selected for this position is the ability to effectively engage
with fellow interdisciplinary team members and the ability to build and
maintain relationships with internal and external partners.

*The Forest*
The Olympic National Forest covers over 632,000 acres on the Olympic
Peninsula in the northwest corner of Washington State. The Forest is
divided into two Ranger Districts with the Pacific Ranger District office
located in Forks, Washington and covering the land on the west side of the
Peninsula. The Hood Canal District Ranger District is located on the east
side of the Peninsula, along Hood Canal, with the District Office in
Quilcene, Washington.

The Olympic Peninsula is a unique geophysical providence surrounded on
three sides by saltwater. U.S. Highway 101 is the main travel route
paralleling the Pacific Coast on the west, Strait of Juan de Fuca on the
north, and inland waters of Puget Sound on the east. This 6,500 square
mile area is an association of complex, winding ridges, rugged and
precipitous mountains, deep canyons, and tree covered slopes.

The Olympic Peninsula has an incredible variety of environments within
short distances. Within less than 50 miles between Mt. Olympus and the
Pacific Ocean, the vegetation changes from the lush, temperate rain forests
of the Hoh, Queets, and Quinault Valleys to an arctic environment of
lichens and mosses above 7,000 feet. Heaviest precipitation occurs in the
fall, reaching a peak in December and then decreasing in spring. Winter
snowfall on the Peninsula ranges from 10 inches in the lower valleys to
greater than 250 inches in the higher mountains. Summers are relatively
dry, with warmer temperatures averaging near 70 degrees.

A multitude of recreational opportunities exist year-round on the Olympic
National Forest. Auto touring, camping, picnicking, and backpacking are
popular spring and summer activities. Fishing, hunting, hiking, berry
picking, and mushrooming are enjoyed during the fall and winter months.

The combination of abundant rainfall, steep dissected landscapes, and a
past legacy of intensive timber harvest and road building create numerous
resource management challenges and opportunities. The Olympic National
Forest is focused on restoration. We have a large and aggressive program
and the forest is recognized as one of the leaders in the Region for road
decommissioning and stabilization projects.

Check out the Olympic National Forest web site at
www.fs.fed.us/r6/olympicfor more information on the Forest.

*Description of the Forest:*

The Shawnee National Forest includes about 280,000 acres of National Forest
System land and is the single largest publicly owned body of land in the
State of Illinois. Within those lands, one can find the following:
- Seven Congressionally-designated Wilderness Areas (about 10% of the
Forest)
- Six candidate Wild and Scenic Rivers
- Four National Natural Landmarks
- Four heritage resource sites on the National Register of Historic
Places
- Two National Scenic Byways (NSB)
- Great River Road NSB, extending along the Mississippi River
- Ohio River NSB, along the Ohio, where it begins in Pennsylvania,
traveling to Cairo, Illinois, where the Ohio meets the mighty Mississippi
- 80 designated Natural Areas considered important for botanical,
ecological, geological or zoological reasons (about 5% of the Forest). Ten
of these natural areas are designated by the Forest Service as Research
Natural Areas (9 ecological areas and 1 botanical area) to focus research
on these high value ecological sites.
- 56 ecological areas
- 14 botanical areas
- 3 geological areas
- 14 zoological areas

The Supervisor’s Office is located in Harrisburg with a Ranger Station in
Vienna and a Work Center in Jonesboro. The Forest sits at the confluence
of the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers and is rich in history, reflecting the
pioneer movement of Americans into the west. The Forest is predominantly
oak-hickory, although pine was planted in many areas in the past. Swamps
contain tupelo and cypress communities. Razorback ridges associated with
the Ozark upthrust are found on the west side of the Forest; the broader
ridges associated with the Shawnee hills are found on the east side of the
Forest. The Wisconsin glacier stopped north of the Shawnee, so the Grand
Prairie (and its corn fields) most associated with the state of Illinois
starts 40 miles north of the Forest.

The Forest is within a day's drive (350 miles) of more than 45 million
people, or 17% of the U.S. population. (U.S. Census Bureau, 7-1-97
estimate) Additional information about the Forest may be found at the Shawnee
National Forest <http://www.fs.usda.gov/shawnee> website.
* *
*Climate:*

One can experience all four seasons in the southern Illinois region with an
average of 3” of snow per year and temperatures rarely below 0 degrees.
Summer days are sunny and humid with highs in the 80’s – 90’s, occasionally
topping 100. Spring weather can occur in March, and fall weather can
extend into November. During the spring and fall seasons, the climate and
beauty of the area is especially compelling. Spring brings an abundance of
blooming dogwoods, redbuds and wildflowers. The fall is saturated with
color, as the leaves turn brilliant reds, gold and yellows. Garden of the
Gods, the most visited site on the Forest, is a must-see during the fall
color season. The unusual rock formations, coupled with the surrounding
Garden of the Gods Wilderness, portray the beauty of southern Illinois at
its finest.
