Work at Yellowstone National Park

Fall Opportunities

Working in Yellowstone in the Fall

Autumn brings its own special allure; a wonderful time of year, when temperatures begin to cool, the leaves change colors and a new season begins. When the summer starts to slip and fall takes hold, it’s one of the most amazing times to live and work in the world’s first national park.

Multiple jobs in Yellowstone are available in the fall and there are lots of reasons why working in the park is an incredible opportunity. For one, if you can’t commit to working for a full summer season, this shorter period may be more suitable and offer a sampling of the flavor of the park. Who knows, it may be enough to hook you into coming back. Photographers and anglers consider fall to be an especially appealing time to be here as well.

Fall at a Glance

August and early September are time for the bison rut (or mating season). Bears will ramp up their search for food (often in rocky areas as they munch on moths) to get ready for their yearly hibernation.

Have you ever heard the bugle of the bull elk? It’s a thrilling yet haunting experience and September is the best time to hear it. The leaves of the cottonwood and aspen trees start to turn and blanket the hillsides in gold.

Things start to wind down as the lodges close and the park prepares for winter. Park visitation declines as Yellowstone transitions to winter.
