Join Michael Joyce, NRRI Wildlife Ecologist, as he discusses the history and current status of the fisher population in Minnesota via a live Zoom meeting. He will talk about their latest research including research to examine cavity availability, whether artificial den boxes are a viable habitat management tool for fishers, and interactions between bobcats and fishers. $5 per family.
