Forest Service Station: Rocky Mountain Research Station

I like being a scientist because I love to read, write and explore. My research is really exciting to me, and I look forward to it every day. Holding small mammals, smelling the grass, watching a prescribed fire - these are the things that make field research so much fun. I also love to write up my research. It's exciting when a new publication comes out and you get your pack of reprints in the mail. As a scientist I also get to travel all around the world to talk about my research and to explore different ecosystems. I never stop learning- and that is big fun!
