MADISON - As spring weather sweeps across state wildlife biologists and cooperating volunteers are hard at work in the field to monitor Wisconsin's wildlife.
Each spring, Department of Natural Resources staff and volunteers complete surveys to learn more about Wisconsin's pheasants, ruffed grouse, frogs, and a variety of other wildlife species. Spring and summer surveys take place during all hours on designated roadside routes, and these procedures may require biologists to make frequent stops for short, pre-determined periods of time. Motorists are reminded to be aware these ongoing efforts.
Each spring, DNR staff and volunteers complete surveys to learn more about Wisconsin's pheasants, ruffed grouse, frogs, and a variety of other wildlife species.
Survey results can be found online, and those interested in learning more about Wisconsin's wildlife species are encouraged to view these valuable data. Department staff would like to thank survey volunteers for their continued dedication to working closely in partnership with DNR and other key stakeholders.
