Biology Major Finds and Studies Wetland Fowl

Biology major Olivia Widenmeyer (sponsored by Merrill Tawse, Professional Instructor of Biology) presents her investigative findings on the Virginia and Sora Rails within the Ashland University Black Fork Wetlands at the 1 MC2:45 p.m. poster/exhibition session in the Alumni Room. In her research, she located 2-3 territorial males at one pond and 2 at the other pond. The fact that these birds are listed as a species of concern by ODNR, makes this a significant find by Olivia.
