Water is quite possibly the most important forest value we have. Bonny Hammons shows what being a hydrologist for the McKenzie River Ranger District is all about. Hydrologists monitor water quality and work with forest managers and operators to help plan forest projects, reduce the impact of logging on a watershed and help restore fish habitat. Bonny works for the U.S. Forest Service. (Part of the "Find Your Path" series created by the Oregon Forest Resources Institute.)
