Lauren Mitchell returns to FSPW

Posted on Thursday, December 6th, 2012 by »

Lauren Mitchell, the SUNY Ranger School graduate who was our summer intern from year 2011 is back in the saddle at FSPW as our 2012/13 wolverine study project coordinator. The study has morphed considerably since last year, but we are still going camera-hunting for rare forest carnivores, as well as setting out weather monitoring stations.

You can welcome Lauren back (and learn more about this winter’s citizen science program) by writing to mustelids@scotchmanpeaks.org
