Site Manager - Capitol Reef Field Station

Position Category: Staff - Full-Time

Summary:
Capitol Reef Field Station (CRFS) is located within a stunning valley in Capitol Reef National Park and functions as an education and research center under the direction of Utah Valley University (UVU) in partnership with Capitol Reef National Park. The CRFS Site Manager manages all aspects of the off-grid field station, while also facilitating or conducting engaged learning, environmental conservation, and research and creative work through the exploration of the Colorado Plateau. The unique and remote nature of CRFS results in a wide range of job responsibilities. The site manager manages the off-grid facilities, which include solar panels, a battery bank, and a water treatment plant. The site manager facilitates and manages visitors staying at CRFS for multiple days, including university students, faculty, and staff, and federal employees. The site manager conducts a CRFS and national park orientation, CRFS facilities tour, and often a guided educational hike with every group that visits CRFS. The site manager conducts science education with CRFS groups, such as geology, ecology, archeology, and astronomy within the context of the Colorado Plateau. Additionally, the site manager is required to stay at CRFS overnight while visitors are at CRFS and is generally on-call while the field station is occupied, which requires living at least part-time at CRFS. Finally, the site manager is at the intersection of UVU and the National Park Service and frequently works with several divisions and departments within both institutions. Reports directly to the Capitol Reef Field Station Director.
