May 1 2012 - Southern Site Fisher Field Trip
The Pacific fisher wildlife research team from the southern site of the Sierra Nevada Adaptive Management Project led a group of participants to their research site. They have been studying the fisher for four years and have two years remaining in their evaluation of this population's response to local fuel treatments being done by the Forest Service. As it will be denning season by May, the research team wanted to show some of the interesting details they have learned about the fisher's denning habits over the last few years.
