Chuck Nelson, associate professor in the Department of Community, Agriculture, Recreation and Resources Studies, helped ANR Communications and WTVS (Detroit Public TV) receive a Michigan Emmy for their work on “Restoring Wetlands.” The video introduces landowners and wetland restoration specialists, and tells the stories of their partnerships, restorations and the results.
The video, nominated in the environment category, was a CANR and MSU Extension project overseen by Chuck Nelson. It was produced by Scott Allman of ANR Communications. Partners on the project were Ducks Unlimited and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
An Emmy is considered the television equivalent to an Academy Award. This honor was one of four regional Emmys received by Michigan State University at a gala in Detroit on June 5.
