Spring Marsh - Wood County Wildlife Area

This is one of my favorite marshes in central Wisconsin. There is always something going on in this area. Trumpeter swans nest in this marsh as well as sandhill cranes and a variety of waterfowl. Soon this marsh will fill with signs of timber wolves, black bear, raccoon, mink a bobcat from time to time. These preditors move in when the marshland birds hatch their clutches thus looking for a quick meal.

New Wisconsin Endangered Resources License Plate

On Wednesday April 7th I attended the release of the new Wisconsin endangered resources license plate in Madison. The photograph featuring the badger was one of my photographs taken from the Wood County Wildlife Area. This badger photograph is one of my most important photographs; creating an emphasis on endangered resources in Wisconsin. It is projected that the new plate design will generate over one million dollars of extra revenue for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources; protecting important land and wildlife throughout the Wisconsin wilderness.
