Adirondack Trip Report

                            Traveling north is not considered the normal cure for the winter blues but nevertheless, the RFS students spent a few days at the Adirondack Ecological Center last week for a winter wildlife ecology workshop.  The class, led by faculty, staff and graduate students at the center focused on how wildlife cope with harsh winter conditions and techniques for studying wildlife in the snow.  With a trip high temperature of 17 degrees, the harsh conditions were easily met but that put only a mild damper on the field activities.  See more trip photos at     https://www.facebook.com/raystownfieldstation .

 

 

              Sugaring Report   -the unseasonably cold weather has stalled out the sugaring season.   We tapped an additional 52 trees on Saturday but do not expect the sugar water to run until late next week.  It is now unlikely that we will be making syrup by Alumni Sugaring weekend of March 7th but we plan to continue tapping trees so please come out and join us.
