Hello, my name is Jackson Keesling! I’m from the small town of Pendleton, Indiana and I’m currently a senior in Wildlife at Purdue University. I have a big passion for the outdoors and a fascination with large mammals, particularly ungulates. During my three years at Purdue, I have had the opportunity to participate in some research, but nothing that is as hands on or as full of an experience as the FNR REEU. I joined the program to learn new skills, reinforce old skills, and overall better prepare myself for a position in natural resource science.
