MADISON, Wis. - The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has hired 11 new wildlife technicians.
The new technicians will work with other department employees to provide a wide range of wildlife and land management services, said Tom Hauge, DNR wildlife management bureau director.
"Wildlife technicians are on the frontlines of conservation in Wisconsin," Hauge said. "They are responsible for a great deal of important on-the-ground work and I'm excited to welcome them to the department."
Hauge said each of the new wildlife technicians possesses a strong academic background paired with previous work experience. The new technicians will be involved with citizens in their community as they transition into a new position with DNR.
Kenneth Pemble is stationed in Florence County and will serve Little Rice Wildlife Area, Spread Eagle State Natural Area, the Pine Popple Wild River Area and Forest and Florence County Forests.
