Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park (CHCH) is currently recruiting for a WG-9 Preservationist to help care for the park’s 1,500 commemorative features and historic structures. The vacancy announcement opened last Thursday, and closes next Tuesday:

Established in 1890, CHCH is the oldest national park East of the Mississippi River, and preserves resources associated with the 1863 Civil War Campaign for Chattanooga and 12,000 years of American Indian presence in the Tennessee River Valley at Moccasin Bend. With close to 10,000 acres in North Georgia and Southeast Tennessee, 100 miles of trails, more than 1 million visitors, and located in the growing Chattanooga metropolitan area, the park offers a diverse range of visitor experiences.
Chattanooga was voted the best outdoor town in America in 2015, and touts a wide range of recreational activities, including hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, and rock climbing. Residential options range from from rural to suburban to urban, with plentiful choices of amenities in terms of housing, health care, retail, schools, and colleges and universities.
