We go back a long, long way! When the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) first established an office to cooperate directly with the Extension System's fish and wildlife component, I was a mere lad of 49. I became involved 4 years later, still a very young man! Now that the program and I have matured it's a good time to reflect on past accomplishments and associations and to look ahead to a continuing productive relationship.
