Road Death & Road Life: Habitat Connectivity in Washington
Presenter: Kristina Ernest, CWU Biology Instructor
Kristina Ernest will address how road infrastructure affects ecology in Washington State. She will describe how wildlife passages can help reconnect populations that are divided by roads. Focusing on the crossings (under and over) Interstate 90, Kristina will share what we’re learning about how passages are affecting pikas and other mammals.
