Conservation Biology Class Help with Master Naturalist Program

The Pennsylvania Master Naturalist program is a statewide partnership initiative that aims to connect people with their local ecosystems through intensive natural science training and local conservation service work.  It is designed to teach adult participants about the natural history and ecology of Pennsylvania’s diverse ecoregions.

As a service learning project, students from the Millersville Conservation Biology class helped set up a mammal workshop for the Pennsylvania Master Naturalist program.  Students set out small mammal traps and remote cameras to survey mammal species at the Climber’s Run Nature Preserve.  Below are some of the results from this effort.
