Agriculture, Food, & Natural Resources
Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources focus on the essential elements of life–water, air, food, and land. Individuals who work in this area include farmers and ranchers; utility operators providing oil, electricity, and natural gas; and conservationists protecting wilderness and wildlife. This pathway encompasses everything from putting food on our tables to turning raw materials into products everyone uses. For students in this pathway, the Earth is one giant classroom full of natural wonders to explore. If you love to be outdoors, enjoy caring for plants and animals, and want to help conserve our natural resources, then Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources may be the right career pathway for you.
