Fire History Fieldwork at Spring Mountain, PA

Concord University students Chance Raso ('15) and Katie Testerman ('16) assisted Dr. Saladyga in collecting fire-scarred tree samples at Spring Mountain in Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania (see Dr. Saladyga's research).  Katie also recorded bird sounds at multiple sites across the study area, which she will use to assess species composition within different forest types.  Chance will be starting the graduate program in Geography at Virginia Tech in the fall of 2015.
