Wetlands for Wildlife—the second episode of The Illinois River documentary created for WTVP—is now available online! It features researchers Jason DeBoer and Andrya Whitten from the Illinois River Biological Station as well as Aaron Yetter from the INHS Forbes Biological Station!
We had the opportunity to showcase our fish techniques and some fish to local fifth and sixth graders at the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency dive, held at the Emiquon Preserve.
Researchers Rich Pendleton, Levi Solomon, and Blake Bushman of the INHS Illinois River Biological Station are helping to educate the next group of Conservation Police Officers. The trio provided hands on training to Illinois Conservation Police Officer Cadets concerning fish sampling and identification with demonstrations on the Illinois River.
