Outdoors and Nature Careers
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), nearly half of all jobs required outdoors. For purposes of this topic, an outdoor career is one in which at least some workers spend a large part of their workday doing tasks outside. Industry sectors with opportunities for employment outdoors include: • Agriculture, forestry, fishing, and hunting, Construction, Leisure and hospitality, Mining, quarrying, and oil and gas extraction, Transportation and warehousing, and Utilities. While not all workers in these industry sectors are outdoors, at least some of them are. Even people who work primarily outdoors, however, may spend at least part of their time indoors.
