Who We Are

Are You Looking for Just a Job, or a Lifetime Career Adventure?

For more than a century, since 1905, Forest Service employees have been on the front line of conservation, resource utilization, and wildland management. Today, there is more excitement, greater challenges, and more career choices than ever before available to people who join the Nation's premier forest management agency.

Managing some of the most magnificent lands in our nation in ways that are most effective for the land, water, air, wildlife, and people of America is our mission, and a great responsibility.

The Forest Service is constantly moving forward. Our fundamental responsibility is sound and scientific focus on stewardship and sustainability of the land, water and communities. Exciting advances in science and technology, communications, national and global priorities, and public expectations are opening new vistas for Forest Service employees.

Much of our work today involves collaboration with other Federal and State agencies, local communities, private and tribal landowners, university research centers, and international organizations.

We are a nationwide organization of more than 30,000 people engaged in hundreds of specific occupations, including; Foresters, Biologists, Engineers, Teachers, Firefighters, Accountants, Computer Specialists, Law Enforcement, Public Affairs Specialists, Recreation Specialists, Geographic Information Specialists, and more. Most Forest Service employees focus on managing and improving our Nation's forests and grasslands. Some employees focus on Forest and Range research, others focus on human resource development in Job Corps Centers, and others focus on state and private forestry coordination. This may sound simple, but it's not. It takes skilled individuals across several hundred disciplines working in coordinated teamwork nationwide.
