Ourcata: Meet Michael McDowall, Natural Resources Technician

“I pop up on bears all the time,” says Arcata’s Natural Resources Technician Michael McDowall. Since 2007, Michael has been surveying spotted owls, amphibians and carnivores in and around Arcata. He also monitors the forest's growth, and works with downtown businesses to reduce storm water pollution. Rainy weather can make his outdoor job challenging, but Michael says, “Everyone in the Environmental Services Department really believes in what they're doing. When people do something wholeheartedly, you get high quality work.”
