During this project, students worked with a Ph.D. Candidate from the University of Idaho to collect data on habitat selection criteria of Red Squirrel Middens. Students explored local habitats looking for midden sites, then they followed the outlined procedures provided by the Ph.D. candidate. Students measured data such as distance to closest refuge tree, DBH of that tree, and took note of habitat characteristics (canopy cover, forest floor cover, presence of Red Squirrels). Then students created a final product that communicated what they learned throughout the process.
