There is a law firm in Atlanta that only exists to sue the federal government over timber issues. That is not their bread-n-butter, it is the only thing they have ever done. Call someone that works managing National Forest property and ask them. For example, if you cut a stump to 3" above the ground instead of 2.5" above the ground, they sue you. Yes they look at every single piece of land and every single stump that has been cut on that piece of property
Otherwise, I would try and find a job on the coast somewhere. There are plenty of marshes on the GA coast, and all over the Southeast for that matter which would be decent jobs.
You can also look into sewer design, waste disposal, air/water quality testing. Most of the aquatic jobs in Atlanta will be taken by engineers. Really no advice until you know what area of concentration you want to work in
Oh yeah, almost forgot the most important tip. Be black
