Tech Committee

Tech Committee

Composed of recognized experts in waterfowl, landbird, shorebird, and waterbird biology; adaptive resource management; prairie ecology; agricultural issues; bio-economics, human dimensions; and prairie wetland/grassland issues; the Technical Committee provides strategic planning, technical assessment and assistance in advancing PPJV objectives.

The Technical Committee works with ad hoc working groups and with a network of science peers who are asked to assist depending on the issue.
