...Several of the principals gathered Thursday for a sign dedication in the Pike River Hunter Walking Trail - West Unit.
The project involved the Ruffed Grouse Society, Dunbar Sportsmen's Club, Marinette County Forestry and Parks and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
Zimmer is regional biologist for the Ruffed Grouse Society, an organization dedicated to young forest habitat and the wildlife that calls it home.
Also on hand were Mark Grandaw of Dunbar, a board member of the Dunbar Sportsmen's Club; Pete Villas, assistant administrator of Marinette County Forestry and Parks; and Aaron McCullough, DNR wildlife technician.
