EarthFax personnel have broad technical experience in areas ranging from the deserts of the American southwest to the alpine regions of the Rocky Mountains; from the frigid hinterlands of Siberia to the lush green forests of New Zealand. We would rather pick up a shovel and help the project along than lean on that shovel and watch.
EarthFaxians understand that there is more to life than what happens within the walls of our offices. We like the outdoors, our families, our hobbies, our co-workers, and our clients. We like to laugh, help others who are in need, and serve our communities.
