We have begun our winter survey season with wildlife camera stations and snow tracking on Mt. Adams. Teri and Imogene will be checking cameras and tracking across regions of the mountain where we have detected the Cascade red fox since we begun the study in 2008.
After our January kick-off on Mt Adams, we will move to Mt St Helens for February, and on to Mt Rainier for March snow tracking and wildlife camera detections. These winter surveys will be followed by spring surveys at known fox dens on Mt Rainier and summer scat collection along trails across the Gifford Pinchot National Forest and Mt Rainier National Park.
We will assemble a cadre of volunteers this spring so keep in touch if you are interested in collecting fox poo and hiking in gorgeous locations in the Washington Cascades.
