Kathryn Frens, a PhD student in the Boone and Crockett Quantitative Wildlife Center, has received the Ambrose Pattullo Fund for Environmental Issues Graduate Fellowship for Literary Work.
Kathryn's research focuses on the intersection of land use policy, wildlife conservation, and human wellbeing across large landscapes. She is studying how those factors interact in Michigan's Upper Peninsula and the Adirondack Park of New York.
The Pattullo Fund Fellowship recognizes students who are interested in current environmental issues and who have written about these issues for publication in a literary outlet. Kathryn was honored for her fictional piece entitled "Frog Songs" that will be featured in the next edition of Spotlight Magazine.
