170 pp, 8vo (8 1/2" H). "Conservation, says the author, is not a career in itself, but many jobs in government and private industry offer the conservation-minded young person the chance to take part in a vital work. Government offers careers in forestry, soil and wildlife conservation, flood control, biological research, and allied services. Lumber companies, pulp and paper corporations, agricultural associations, farmers' co-operatives, sportsmen's clubs, the fishing industry, chemical firms, and private organizations offer the opportunity for conservation work. In addition to describing the work done by government and industry, the author lists the necessary qualifications for those interested in the field of conservation and suggests schools and colleges where the applicants can receive training in their chosen field."

Dust jacket has light rubbing and minor edgewear, one 1/2" closed tear with associated creases on top edge of front panel near hinge, creases and small tears at top/bottom of spine and part of rear panel top edge, minor soiling.
