Faces of the Forest Service: Meet Serra Hoagland

 

SerraHoagland_PEMA_ElishaFlores.JPGGrowing up near the Eldorado National Forest in California, Serra Hoagland had an early fascination with open spaces and a love and respect of the animal life that inhabits them. Now living in Flagstaff, Arizona, and working as an accomplished scientist for the Eastern Threat Center, she is cutting a path for other Native Americans seeking to work in her field. A woman of many pursuits and interests, Hoagland is also an expert hunter and surfer. Learn more about Hoagland's life and work from the U.S. Forest Service's 'Faces of the Forest Service' feature.
