Join us for a two-part webinar featuring recent research on northern long-eared bat and Canada lynx.

First, Ron Moen will present results from a 2015-2017 study on northern long-eared bat, a species with a declining population in Minnesota because of White-nose syndrome. Findings of this study are consistent with those reported elsewhere, but have Minnesota-specific outcomes that will be useful for management.

The second half of the webinar will consist of a review of Canada lynx habitat management and monitoring on the Superior National Forest from Dan Ryan. This monitoring work involves using DNA to document reproduction, persistence and hybridization between lynx and bobcats. Population trends are monitored using an occupancy track survey and mark-recapture combined with the DNA analysis.

Date: Tuesday July 21, 2020 from noon-1pm central
Speakers: Ron Moen, University of Minnesota Duluth and Dan Ryan, Superior National Forest
Cost: $20 per webinar or $50 for the entire 2020 series
