Wetland Resources of Eastern South Dakota


Many people contributed their time, expertise, and labor to compiling this summary 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 Kjellsen, Mike Estey, Todd Hoernemann, Dennis Hansen, Kevin Hop, Eugene Beckwith, Mike Broschart, Pete Bergmann, Mark Dorhout, John Bien, Lisa Sausville, Terri Symens, Mary O'Neill, Janet Gritzner, and others helped throughout this project. The considerable assistance of U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) employees Charles Elliott, Lewis Cowardin, Ron Reynolds, and Dan Cohan, 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 South Dakota State University 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.
