Forest and Conservation Worker Career
A career as a forest and conservation worker could see you spending your days working in the beautiful outdoors to maintain, improve and protect forests, woodlands, range lands and other vulnerable natural environments. Working under the supervision of a professional forester or other conservation professionals, forest and conservation workers perform a wide variety of manual labor tasks.
The majority of forest and conservation workers are employed on projects on state or federal lands. Many of these workers are directly employed by various government agencies, but they may also be employed through a private company on a contract basis. A smaller number of forest and conservation jobs are available on privately owned woodlands and nurseries.
