Abstract

This is an oral history with Jean McCollum, a noted ecologist and land manager. McCollum recounts her interests in the outdoors, her education from Michigan State University and University of Arizona, and her initial introduction to Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. McCollum discusses her work in various locations with Audubon Society including parts of Louisiana, the Suwanee River, Okefenokee Swamp, Loxahatchee River, Disney’s Wilderness Preserve, and Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. McCollum’s work emphasizes the importance of monitoring natural areas such as the wetlands, and the controlled burning of wetlands to ensure the elimination of invasive species. She also encourages the audience to think about long-term preservation plans for ecological environments.
