NCCT Intern Receives Honorable Mentions at UWSP’s 2016 Student Research Symposium

Through the support of a DNR river grant, NCCT hired a part-time Plover River Watershed GIS Intern. Sean Piette from Duluth, Minnesota is a Natural Resource Planning major at University of Wisconsin’s Stevens Point (UWSP) and was hired to assist staff, volunteers, and develop a GIS analysis on the Plover River watershed. The goal of this DNR grant project is to develop and disseminate materials and educational programs that inform and encourage private landowners to utilize voluntary conservation options as a means to protect priority lands near the Plover River Watershed that provides wildlife habitat, ecological services, and recreational opportunities. Sean introduced some of the initial project findings at the UWSP 2016 Student Research Symposium. He did both an oral presentation that received an honorable mention and a poster presentation that received highest honors. Further research will be done on this project, but it is noteworth to see what progress has been made so far. Stay tuned for further updates and final outcomes.

Thank you for all of your support, donations, and interest in what NCCT does for both you and the community.

Happy Spring!
