Conservation warden: working the outdoor beat is a great, tough job!

Being a Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources conservation warden protecting the state’s natural resources and the people who enjoy them is a great career. That is, if you’re looking for challenges, hard work, camaraderie and tons of variety on top of professional growth and career advancement as a commissioned peace officer.

This is professional public service at its very best. You’ll be enforcing the state’s environmental laws, hunting and fishing regulations, and outdoor recreational rules, along with handling emergencies in sometimes dangerous situations. You’ll also be part of a larger police community that includes state, county and municipal agencies that will need your help with everything from bank robberies to floods.
