In this tag-team presentation, David Droppers, along with Phyllis Reed, North Zone Wildlife Biologist with the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, will present updates from his final season of researching butterflies on the Mountain Loop Highway on the Darrington Ranger District. Phyllis will cover how she met David and how the Forest Service’s responsibility toward habitat management and pollinators lead to projects such as his. Learn about the various issues concerning pollinators, the goals and challenges that the Forest Service faces in meeting these responsibilities, the importance of citizen science, and how you might be able to help.
