This winter, graduate students and science staff with the North Cascades Institute (NCI) will be helping us conduct American marten surveys in the Highway 20 region of the North Cascades. This exciting collaboration will help boost our efforts to collect hairs from martens in this remote area, which is especially difficult to access once the snow flies. Martens have proven to be elusive during the summer months, but we’ve had notable success in sampling them during the winter in the central portion of our study area. NCI field assistants will also be deploying remote cameras at a subset of sites. Maybe we’ll get lucky and photograph a new wolverine in the area!
