Friends of Scarborough Marsh and the Scarborough Public Library invite you to join us for a virtual lecture with Noah Perlut, Ph.D., Professor in the School of Marine and Environmental Programs, University of New England, Biddeford, ME. He and his students will present an overview of the GapTracks Project, a program that assesses the wildlife community in the Gap of the Eastern Trail and Nonesuch River before, during and after trail construction. [Bobcat, pictured left.]
This project was initiated in February, 2017, using remote cameras to evaluate the rich wildlife population along the Gap section of the Eastern Trail. Professor Perlut and his Terrestrial Wildlife class spent the spring semester reviewing thousands of pictures and analyzing the data from the last four years. Join us to learn about our local bobcats, turkeys, fisher, deer and others who use the Gap section of the trail. Preview some of their work on facebook.com/GapTracks.
