News from the Wolverine Tracking Project and more
Well, last weekend was the last weekend. Of the Cascadia Wild 2016-17 Tracking and Camera season, that is. And it sure was a good one to finish the year -- lots of critters showed up on the cameras, and our tracking team had a beautiful day in the snow. And signs of spring are showing up on the mountain -- even in the snow -- giving us a taste of the season that's starting up as we're winding down.
Hare of the Frog, Fox of the Spur
Last weekend, camera crews prepared for some of the final checks of the season, and a team of trackers headed up to Frog Lake for a beautiful sunny day in the snow. Both the tracking and camera volunteers made surprising finds!
Volunteers set out to track in the Cloud Cap Road area this weekend, on the north east side of the mountain. It's an area where long-time volunteers remember seeing mustelid tracks (that's the animal family that includes two target species, weasels and marten), and they were hoping for some good tracks, and to get out of the rain down below.
