No registration required (adults) During the past decade many Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) resource scientists, including Doreen Mengel, collaborated to produce an updated Wetland Planning Initiative to guide management of Missouri's public wetlands for birds and other wildlife. Research projects undertaken from 2012 to 2016 revealed which marsh bird species utilize our wetlands in different seasons and which habitat types they prefer. This presentation explores how these finding shape management decisions that will allow our public lands to support a full suite of wetland-dependent bird species in the face of ongoing habitat loss. Doreen has worked with MDC for 30 years, she was an area manager for properties in northern Missouri for 20 years and then joined the Resource Science division in 2010, STEVEN L JACOBSEN
