In District of Conservation, Gabriella interviews Lexi Quinn, a newly-retired firefighter and immediate past U.S. Forest Service wildland firefighter. She discusses how she got her start in the Great Outdoors through bowhunting, what compelled her to become a firefighter, how fires are started, what it was like combatting the recent California fires, what it’s like for women to serve as firefighters, her thoughts on forest management and what should improve, her next move(s), the value of POMA and why she’s glad she joined the organization.
