At the LA River Ranger District Office in San Fernando from 10AM to 4PM, employees and outreach specialists will be on hand to help people interested in full-time and seasonal jobs, as well as student internships for the Angeles National Forest and beyond.

The Ranger Station is located at 12371 Little Tujunga Canyon Road, San Fernando, CA 91342. You can also call their office at 818-899-1900.
