Lauren Smith

Lauren Smith is co-editor of Camas Magazine and a second-year graduate student in Environmental Studies at the University of Montana. In addition to being a student and a writer, she is also a field biologist. This means she spends a great deal of time in remote areas studying birds and contemplating why she couldn’t have developed a passion for plants or rocks, which don’t require one to wake before dawn every morning and don’t tend to move around quite as quickly. Though born and raised in Ohio, Lauren prefers to spend her time in the mountains of the West, where she finds inspiration and large rocks to climb.
