Who you are: You appreciate a combination of field and office work. In your personal life you enjoy outdoor excursions whether it be backpacking, hiking, hunting, skiing, etc. You tend to have a penchant for numbers: thinking in ratios, distributions or how a series of measurements would look graphically. You have a positive attitude, good work ethic, aptitude to learn new skills, and are relaxed navigating in the forest by yourself. You may have a 2- or 4-year college degree in forestry or a related field in Natural Resources. You probably have job experience that at one time or another included vegetation surveys.
