West Virginia Career Colleges: Environmental Science Degrees

Many employers require a bachelor's degree as the minimum education requirement for a career in natural resources and conservation. While there is no formal education requirement in some states or with some employers, the chances of securing employment is much higher if you do carry a degree or diploma.

In addition to specific training for your career specialty, it is recommended that you include science, mathematics, communications and computer science in your education. With the basic training and courses mastered, you can specialize in forest resource management, urban forestry or wood technology, among others.

Natural resources and conservation workers manage forests, lakes and streams to protect them from environmental damage. You may be called upon to plant seedlings, survey and map forest areas, or have experience to develop educational programs. You need to be aware that some conservationists need to work in isolated areas for long periods of time without direct supervision. There will be times, however, when teamwork is essential to achieving desired results. You should also anticipate that the jobs in this industry could be physically demanding, requiring heavy lifting.

Almost a third of natural resources and conservation workers are self-employed. As a qualified natural resources and conservation worker, you can contract your services to almost any company or government agency. No matter whom you work for, though, your employer will expect a strict adherence to company values and confidentiality laws.

If you enjoy working outside alone, and like the idea of protecting our nation's natural resources, then you should consider training for a career in natural resources and conservation.
