Hatchie NWR –- Getting Your Foot in the Door . . .
Joshua D. Emerson is our new intern for the summer of 2009 and 2010. The STEP program gives students the opportunity to work in the field and gain experience. At the Hatchie NWR, STEP students were expected to mark boundaries, work on wood duck boxes, help in wood duck banding and identification, general maintenance and many more projects.
