Park Scientists by Mary Kay Carson - ESSENTIAL

Carson, Mary Kay Park Scientists: Gila Monsters, Geysers, and Grizzly Bear in America’s Own Backyard, 72 p.  NONFICTION.  Houghton Mifflin, 2014.  $19.  

Carson takes a look at three of our national parks and the scientists who are constantly investigating, nurturing, and diligently working to keep the parks and their flora an fauna healthy.  It is a panoramic look at a few of the many projects that are constantly undergoing within these breath-taking spaces.  More people would become avid environmentalists if they took the time to read this book – or to read any book in the Scientists in the Field series.  Gorgeous.
