Introduction

We are graduate students in the history department at Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama. We are working on an oral history project in our public history class. For this project, we have interviewed three retired Forest Service employees. We have created this site to reflect on our experience and to share information we have learned from the individuals we interviewed about what life is like working in the Forest Service.
