Cohen’s Lab Leads Workshop with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

198

As part of his ongoing outreach efforts, Dr. Bradley Cohen’s (biology) lab coordinated and led a three-day workshop with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service entitled, “Wetland Management for Wintering Waterfowl and other Wetland-dependent Birds.”

This was an in-class and in-field workshop focused on practical aspects of wetland management for wetland-dependent birds during the non-breeding period. Cohen and his students gave talks throughout the series. The goal was to empower National Wildlife Refuge staff to perform management activities that follow the best-available science, are adequately documented for The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and contribute directly to the North American Waterfowl Management Plan and other international conservation initiatives. Pictured are (from left to right) master’s degree student, Cole Howard and Ph.D. candidate, Nick Masto, giving presentations.

Congratulations, Dr. Cohen, on another research project partnering with a State or U.S. Agency and for including students on your research. These first-hand research and presentation opportunities are priceless – Wings Up!
