Could you put this out on the FWgrad jobs list? I think someone with a broad
background in Wildlife could fit just as well as some with a Forestry
background. If anyone has questions they can contact me. I am also pasting
in the catalog descriptions for the two classes that are the core of the
responsibility for this position. The soils expertise would be a bonus but
isn't a must. Thanks much.
