The DFHP is comprised of 11 states with many species populations overlapping in multiple areas. This unique situation requires occasional, regional-local level planning and coordination to address DFHP related issues. The regional groups are broken down into 4 areas; Basin and Range, Lower Colorado, Upper Colorado, and Rio Grande.

DFHP Coordinator - Stephanie L. Vail-Muse
Stephanie came from the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism where she worked at the Milford Fish Hatchery as a Fisheries Specialist. During her time there she assisted in the Walleye Larviculture Pilot Study and the various sport fish breeding programs. Prior to working as a Fisheries Specialist she worked at the Milford Nature Center as a Naturalist with an educational focus on wildlife rehabilitation and local conservation awareness. She has a Bachelors of Science Degree in Biology with an Emphasis in Fisheries and Wildlife from Northeastern State University and is currently pursuing a Masters from Troy University in Biological and Environmental Science. In her free time Stephanie pretends to sew, uses her family and friends as guinea pigs for all her DIY body products and secretly wants to live in a world where books come bundled with chocolate and a force field around her house that repels dirt and sticky fingered children.
