Collaborative Restoration of the Jemez Mountains from 7-8 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 17 at PEEC
Anne Bradley, the Forest Conservation Program Manager for The Nature Conservancy will talk about the Conservancy’s collaborative forest restoration and conservation projects in the Jemez Mountains. Of particular interest is a newer study of the rare and elusive Jemez Mountains Salamander, which includes a unique partnership with the “Conservation Canines” from the University of Washington. Because the salamander is hard to find, biologists hope the dogs’ ability to detect its scent will improve survey success.
