While the games in Sochi are in full swing, so is ASC's Olympics project. Instead of Russian, however, our events are playing out in the beautiful Olympic National Forest (ONF) in Washington state. The goal there is simple, if not necessarily easy: find evidence of a coastal Pacific Marten. Though there haven't been any confirmed sightings of marten in years, Betsy Howell, USFS Wildlife Biologist for the ONF, is hopeful that they still remain.
This is the second year ASC has worked with the ONF on marten surveys. You can get more information about the project on our ONF marten project page and read last year’s project report. You can keep up with ASC by subscribing to ASC's blog, liking us on Facebook and following us on Twitter (@AdventurScience), Instagram (@AdventureScience) and Google+.
