CAREERS WITHIN: Farming, Fishing, and Forestry

Farm and Forestry Management

Farm and Forest Managers provide oversight for our natural and agricultural resources. Working with staff who are in the field, they make strategic resource decisions about farms, forests and aquacultural sites across the country.
Farming

Farm workers keep the corps and animals that feed us growing and healthy. In both industrial and smaller settings, they manage existing farming techniques as well as develop new ones in response to advances in technology and practice.
Forestry

Forestry workers both hunt the land and work to preserve it. Focused on how our lives are dependent on the wilderness, they make sure that both our animal and plant resources are managed and populations are controlled.
