An ecological research project in high school is the spark that ignited a lifelong interest in environmental science for Rob Scrafford. Fast forward to today, and his passion continues as he leads natural resource investigations, water resources assessments, large-scale site remediation projects, and has restored more than 20 miles of stream and acres of wetlands.
