A Natural History of Adirondack Flying Squirrels

Adirondack Experience, The Museum on Blue Mountain Lake (ADKX) next 2019 Cabin Fever Sunday Series lecture, Night Moves: Natural History of Adirondack Flying Squirrels with Charlotte Demers, is set for February 24th, at 1:30 pm.

Although seldom seen, two species of flying squirrel inhabit that Adirondack Park. Both play an important role in our ecosystem, but the occurrence of one species can be a great detriment to the survival of the other. Demers will focus on these nocturnal critters and the on-going research at the ESF Newcomb Campus that helps scientist understand how climate change may be impacting the health of their populations.

Charlotte Demers has worked as a biologist at the Newcomb Campus of the College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) for over 30 years. She is responsible for collecting and maintaining databases associated with the long-term research. Her primary research interest revolves around small mammals and their importance in forested ecosystems. She manages the Adirondack Interpretive Center, the outreach facility of ESF’s Newcomb Campus.
