What happens to little critters when big trees are removed? Master Naturalist Brad Robinson will present the results of his study of small mammal populations two areas at Goodwin Forest: a mature white pine forest and a clear cut 3 years after the harvest. Brad will also demonstrate the trapping techniques used to assess small mammal populations. We will be checking traps outside, so dress for the weather. All are welcome.

Brad Robinson completed Master Naturalist Level One and Two training at Goodwin Conservation Center and has formal training in mammal ecology. He worked for DEEP for many years in the pesticide program, and is now a happily retired nature nerd.
