Bill Starry (left), chief of the Land Management Office at McAlester Army Ammunition Plant, gets an assist from Eric Suttles, a biologist from the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, to remove a screen from a drainage pipe that kept beavers from blocking it and inadvertently raising the water level in a wetland on the installation. The screen was replaced by wood, which will cause the water level to rise and flood the vegetation to create a reservoir for water fowl during the winter. MCAAP has 1,030 acres of aquatic habit and wetlands. (U.S. Army photo by Kevin Jackson)
