The Ruffed Grouse Society's Gary Zimmer (Coordinating Biologist) was involved with the filming of two episodes of the outdoor TV show Northland Adventures produced by WQOW-TV of Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Filmed with long-time host Dave Carlson one episode entitled “Time to Regenerate” focused on RGS’s Wisconsin Coverts Project and the management done by RGS supporters Terry and JoAnne Ides. The second episode, entitled “Tackling the Tags” emphasized RGS’s efforts to manage tag alder habitat for woodcock.
