UW-Madison and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Collaborate on Grassland Management Project

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Leopold Wetland Management District (Portage, WI) is seeking new grassland management tools and partnering with researchers at University of Wisconsin – Madison to discover how cutting and harvest of vegetation may benefit waterfowl and humans. The collaborative effort seeks to identify whether grassland materials can be harvested in ecologically and environmentally sound ways and whether the materials are feasible as livestock feed and bedding, and biomass? for bioenergy?. See here for more information on this emerging research and outreach partnership. See here for aims and goals of the project.
