The Forest Service is organizationally divided into three "Deputy Areas" -- the National Forest System, Research and Development and State and Private Forestry. Each Deputy Area has different roles and responsibilities. Throughout the agency, Conservation Education Coordinators work regionally across their Deputy Area to support and coordinate the agency's programs.
