U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) scientist Nicole Athearn has received a scholarship from the 2007 National Wildlife Refuge System Centennial Scholarship Program in recognition of her research in modeling bird habitat in south San Francisco Bay salt ponds. The Walt Disney Co., the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation are supporting the annual scholarship program, which was launched in 2003 in honor of the 100th anniversary of the National Wildlife Refuge System. The program recognizes students whose research will contribute toward improved management and understanding of the diverse fish, wildlife, and plant resources in our national wildlife refuges. These merit-based awards take into consideration the value of the research and the student's academic achievements. Athearn, a biologist stationed at the San Francisco Bay Estuary Field Station of the USGS Western Ecological Research Center, is pursuing her doctorate at the University of California, Davis. Her research will assist in restoration efforts in Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge.

Additional information about the 2007 scholarship winners is posted on the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation Web site.
