Waterfowl Management in Georgia

Preface & Acknowledgments

Wildlife biologists serving on the Georgia Department of Natural Resources' Waterfowl Committee prepared this booklet. It is intended to serve as a source of general information for those with a casual interest in waterfowl. It also serves as a more detailed guide for landowners and managers who want to improve the waterfowl habitat on their property. The committee hopes this booklet will serve to benefit the waterfowl resource in Georgia and help to insure its well being for generations to come. Land management assistance is available from Wildlife Resources Division biologists. For additional help, contact the nearest Game Management Section office.
