FALL 2012: Field Season Winding Down
Biodrawversity has had an extremely busy and productive field season this year. Projects ranged from studying the effects of a dam removal on rare freshwater mussels in the Penobscot River to surveying for rare plants and animals along the corridor of a proposed highway extension. Our wildlife biologists used SCUBA gear to conduct intensive mussel surveys in rivers and ponds throughout the northeast region from Maine to Maryland. Our botanists surveyed in habitats as varied as pond shores, powerline swaths, and upland forests. And our communications team wrote, edited, and produced several new publications for clients. Going into the fall and winter, we look forward to wrapping up reports and starting our next round of projects!
