September 25, 2013 Meeting Recap

We discussed upcoming trips such as October 5th Green Earth Work Day and October 26th “Breaking the Surface” paddling event to break the record of the most non-motorized water vehicles in one location, which costs $10 if you buy your ticket by the 18th. Elizabeth Hillard, our speaker for the evening, presented her findings from her dissertation for her Master’s degree on Elk in the Great Smokey Mountains National Park. She discussed habitat selection using paths made by elk, as well as their browse and pellet dispersion. To get this opportunity, she did free field research, undergraduate research, volunteering… anything to get experience. A graduate student needs your help for their project! If you like muskrats, otters, beavers, and minks, this could be an experience for you! Email pfeltrop@siu.edu for details.
