Searching for Pacific Martens on the Olympic

NFF Grant Partners and Projects

scroll

It’s been six years since the Pacific marten was seen on the wet corner of Washington, the Olympic Peninsula. And Adventurers and Scientists for Conservation (ASC), the Bozeman, Montana-based nonprofit is helping look for them.

Thanks to a grant from the National Forest Foundation, ASC is working closely with the Forest Service to set-up and maintain monitoring stations, twenty cameras in all.

Find out what lure they’ve used and the challenges they’ve faced in the full article in the summer/fall issue of Your National Forests.
