Careers in Natural Resources
Too many young people are unaware or barred off from rewarding and stable work in natural resource stewardship, and work outside. Either because it is hard to know what kind of jobs are out there or because doors are being closed. This initiative is here to help everyone overcome barriers to a rewarding career.

Consult “A How-To Guide for Pursuing a Career in Natural Resources”
This free guide outlines steps to attaining a career with the Federal government through USA Jobs, as well as getting hired by cities and the state of Colorado.

Through research and meetings with human resource staff at multiple levels of government (as well as valuable committee involvement and support), we hope this Guide will be a useful tool to breaking down barriers to employment and help illuminate the path to a long-term career in natural resources.
Internship Partnership Program
The purpose of Internship Partnership Program is to offer youth corps graduates, military veterans, and other qualified candidates the opportunity for real world work experience.
