If you love being outdoors and making money consider working for the Michigan DNR this summer.

According to the Department of Natural Resources website, they are looking to hire more than 1,200 people for a variety of jobs this year. They include working at:

  • State parks
  • Recreation areas
  • Campgrounds
  • Boating harbors

The DNR says that these jobs are perfect for college students, retirees and/or seniors, and those trying to get back into the workforce. You must be 18+, willing to work evenings and weekends, and pass a drug test in order to apply.

Getting paid to spend time in the sun all with a flexible schedule? Sounds like too good of an opportunity to pass up! Get more info and download an application form here.

You can also contact the nearest state park to get more information.
