There are many outdoor related fields of occupations where federal and local agencies provide career opportunities, such as natural resources, outdoor recreation and conservation, or environmental education. But in order to provide a clear overview about the most relevant fields of occupations in the government sector, we limit this guide to the most popular fields of occupation.

In addition, when studying outdoor career opportunities outside the government sector, you might find an overlap for some fields of occupations and similar career paths for nonprofits, education or commercial businesses. Depending of the sector you are looking for a job, be aware of different requirements for both, educational background and job application materials.
