As the ecologist at Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument, Charlie Schelz will be involved in the inventory and monitoring of the biodiversity. He will work closely with a wide variety of groups, students, youth, and researchers; surveying, and developing studies that help us understand species composition, and ecological structure and function, or how all the pieces work together. He will use this information to better manage the monument for biodiversity, and to accomplish this through collaboration with a diverse array of local, national, and international groups.
