MOWA is a non-profit organization of professional outdoor writers, photographers, editors, and radio and television broadcast journalists. Hiltz and Bradburn are both ARL employees in their junior year of studying fisheries and wildlife management. Hiltz is from Cadillac, Mich.; Bradburn, who is also pursuing a second major in fish health, is from Fenton, Mich.
