Like a stream that meanders down from the hills, Jimmy Harris’ years after high school followed a rambling path. Eventually he found his way to the University of Georgia with enough transfer credits to earn a forestry degree from Warnell.

The last intact predator-prey interaction can be found in Southwest Florida.
