Elk NetworkResearchers Seeks Info about Elk in Northern California

General | November 12, 2019

Do you live in northern California or hunt there? Are you familiar with elk activity in the Plumas National Forest? If so, you’re in need.

“I’m creating a monitoring plan to identify important elk calving areas and habitat on the Plumas National Forest as part of my graduate work at Oregon State University (OSU). I’m hoping to get photographs and locations of elk collected by members of the public that will help us better understand areas important to the elk,” Abby Marshall, OSU Natural Resources Master’s student, told the Territorial Dispatch. “Photographs that include calves are particularly helpful, as they can help us identify areas to survey and better manage important calving areas.”

For more information, call Marshall at (530) 836-2575.
