We set out on site with local scientist Trevor Bloom to learn more about his project with The Northern Rockies Conservation Cooperative. Trevor is following observations Dr. Frank Craighead made in the 70s in his book, “For Everything There is a Season”. By doing this, Trevor will compare his observations to plant species now to Dr. Craighead’s observations years ago on Blacktail Butte. To help streamline collecting data, Trevor has gathered a team of ‘citizen scientists’ to help with his project.
A 20-mile hike in the Tetons rewarded bumble bee researcher Ellen Keaveny with a special Bombus occidentalis sighting.
