"A professionally accepted and integrated work force dedicated to the cause of conservation"
With the program responsibilities we have, we must maintain and improve employee professionalism to strengthen district programs at all levels. We need communication to exchange information, learn from one another and create good innovative programs. We also need to work with our district officials at the state, regional, and national levels to ensure that district's remain the delivery system for natural resource management programs.
