Jan 14, 2011 — Susan Morse is a lifelong "tracker." She has more than 35 years experience monitoring wildlife and interpreting wildlife habitat use. Her research has focused on cougar, bobcat, black bear, and Canada lynx.
She's done extensive research nationally, and decades of conservation work in the Champlain basin. Sixteen years ago, Morse founded Keeping Track, an organization devoted to training professional biologists and citizen scientists alike in wildlife monitoring skills.
On Jan. 21 and 22, she'll bring her expertise to the Adirondack Wild Center in Tupper Lake. Friday night, she'll give a talk and slideshow. On Saturday, she'll take Wild Center staff and others interested in joining her cadre of citizen scientists out into the field for a hands-on tracking workshop. She spoke with Martha Foley.
