Piscataquis Observer publishes opinion piece on UMaine wildlife scholars

The Piscataquis Observer published the article, “UMaine wildlife scholars prove our future is in good hands,” by V. Paul Reynolds, editor of the Northwoods Sporting Journal. Every year, the New England Outdoor Writers Association (NEOWA) awards scholarships to a wildlife major from all six of New England’s land grant universities, according to Reynolds, who wrote about selecting the University of Maine winner, Meija Knafl. Reynolds referred to the UMaine Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Conservation Biology as one of the most respected wildlife schools in the country. “It won’t be long before these new graduates will also be leaving their mark as educators, researchers and biologists,” he wrote about graduating UMaine wildlife majors.
