Welcome to the amazingly diverse and enriching world of forestry and natural resource management and science. The numbers and types of jobs held by graduates in forestry and natural resources are simply too great to thoroughly capture here, though we have given you a fair sampling on the discipline pages. Many graduates follow traditional paths as foresters, park rangers, conservation biologists, scientists and technicians, and managers working for private industry, government agencies, consulting firms or schools/universities. Others start their own businesses or create new positions that meet their expertise.

How much money can I make in these fields?

Pay for starting positions will vary and depends on many factors: your level of education, the area in which you have specialized, where in the US or the World you chose to work, and so forth.
