Become a conservation officer

We are looking for people to protect our natural resources and make sure everyone who wants to enjoy Nebraska’s beauty can do so safely. Conservation officers patrol state parks and other public lands to enforce fish, wildlife, boating and park laws. They also work with the public through educational programs and activities to help everyone enjoy the outdoors. Nebraska’s diverse lands are special, and as a conservation officer, you’ll be on the front lines of making sure they stay that way.
