QDMA Welcomes New Michigan Wildlife Cooperative Coordinator
ATHENS, GA (June 12, 2018) – Morgan Warda has joined Michigan United Conservation Clubs in partnership with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Quality Deer Management Association and Pheasants Forever as the Wildlife Cooperative Coordinator.
Morgan started her journey with QDMA in 2016 and is a graduate of QDMA’s Deer Steward I and II programs. She is also a two-time QDMA intern.
“Morgan is well known to QDMA staff as she’s a former Deer Steward scholarship recipient, and she also interned with the Conservation and Communications departments,” said Kip Adams, QDMA’s Director of Conservation. “She was an outstanding intern, and I am super excited she’s now working full time as the Cooperative Coordinator in Michigan.”
The Michigan Wildlife Cooperative program was created to assist in the creation and enhancement of wildlife cooperatives in Michigan. A wildlife cooperative focuses on bringing together hunters and landowners with similar goals to manage wildlife at a local level. Working cooperatively boosts social engagement, has a greater impact on the local landscape, allows people to share resources and support each other’s efforts.
“I am extremely honored to be serving QDMA in this new capacity,” said Warda. “Our relationship has developed over the past few years, and I am blessed to call many of the staff members mentors and friends. As an intern, I was able to attend deer cooperative events with Anna Mitterling, who was in this position previously. I am looking forward to continuing in Anna’s footsteps while fostering new relationships of my own as we continue to build the cooperative program.”
Founded in 1988, QDMA is a national nonprofit wildlife conservation organization with 60,000 members in all 50 states and Canada, and several foreign countries. QDMA is dedicated to ensuring the future of white-tailed deer, wildlife habitat and our hunting heritage.
