Ever wanted to work on Belle Isle? Or, Milliken State Park on the Detroit River isn’t a bad place to spend a summer and get paid, either. On top of that, for the season, they’re full time jobs.

There’s word from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources that they’re hiring seasonal workers. Here are the details, pasted below:
