"Night Moves: Natural History of Adirondack Flying Squirrels"
educator Charlotte Demers will present “Night Moves: Natural History of
Adirondack Flying Squirrels” on Wednesday, May 29, at Crandall Library
in downtown Glens Falls at 7:00 p.m.
Demers has worked as a biologist at the Newcomb Campus of the College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) for more than 30 years.
Although seldom seen, two species of flying squirrels inhabit the 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. Attendees can learn about these beautiful nocturnal animals and ongoing research at the ESF Newcomb Campus that helps scientist understand how climate change may be impacting the health of their populations.
Demers 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 or on Facebook
