I am very interested in becoming a forester. In order to do this I understand I need to attend college, but in order to do that I must work full time, so I was thinking of enrolling in the forestry and wildlife conservation program through Penn Foster College online. Would this be a legitamate school to get my degree from, and would it be an acceptable degree to become a forester?
