Wetland and Upland Habitat Management Field Trip


The sophomore Fish and Wildlife Management students just returned from an outstanding trip to Tennessee. Highlights included wetland management for waterfowl and other wetland wildlife, private lands management, refuge management for sandhill cranes, and an oak-savanna restoration project on the Cumberland Plateau. Also, special thanks to Jessie Birkhead and Dr. Heath Hagy for their outstanding presentations to the group! Jessie’s latest research was on native warm-season grass management options for livestock farm operations. And, Dr. Hagy presented his research on waterfowl and wetland management. This trip could not have been possible without the support of Billy Minser, Frank Potts, Bill Smith, Wally Akins, Max Cox, and Rob Klippel. Thank you all! (post by Chris Graves)
