Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center
Eastern South Dakota Wetlands
Many people contributed their time, expertise, and labor to compiling this review of eastern South Dakota's wetland resources. The cooperation of the South Dakota Department of Game, Fish & Parks (SDGF&P) staff, particularly George Vandel, Dave Hamm, and Ron Fowler, was invaluable. South Dakota State University (SDSU) employees Mike Estey, Todd Hoernemann, Dennis Hansen, Kevin Hop, Eugene Beckwith, Mike Broschart, Pete Bergmann, Mark Dorhout, John Bien, Lisa Sausville, Terri Symens, and others helped throughout this project. The considerable assistance of U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) employees Lewis Cowardin, Ron Reynolds, Dan Cohan, and Carl Madsen, as well as Linda Shaffer and Herman Robinson of the National Wetlands Inventory, is gratefully acknowledged. We are especially grateful to Mary Brashier, Terry Molengraaf, and Dennis Lundgren of SDSU for editing, designing, and printing this report.
SDGF&P funded digitization of National Wetland Inventory maps and data analysis (Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration Project No. W-114-R) through the South Dakota Cooperative
Fish and Wildlife Research Unit in cooperation with the
USFWS, National Biological Service, U.S. Geological Survey-
Biological Resources Division, SDGF&P, SDSU, and the
Wildlife Management Institute. Publication of this report was
funded by SDGF&P and Region VIII of the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency.
