Southeast Michigan Sea Grant Extension Educator Mary Bohling brought home a gold award for a poster detailing restoration efforts along the Huron-Erie Corridor. Bohling was recognized by the Association of Natural Resources Extension Professionals (ANREP) at the recent biennial conference in Sacramento, California for her poster titled Creating Sustainable Fish Communities through Habitat Restoration in the Huron-to-Erie Corridor. Her entry was selected from among 57 academic poster entries.
The ANREP Conference poster contest recognizes excellence in scholarship, design and presentation of academic posters. Posters are judged against five criteria: content, evidence of scholarship, graphics and design, evaluation strategies, and conclusions/future directions.
Bohling, along with others from Michigan Sea Grant, USGS-Great Lakes Science Center, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, worked on the habitat restoration project.
The ANREP is a national association of Cooperative Extension Service professionals, working in environmental education, fisheries, forestry, wood sciences, range, recreation, waste management, water, wildlife and related disciplines.
