Topic Two: What was that Sound?!: Learn how scientists are using passive acoustic monitoring for using sound recordings to identify sounds in natural habitats including birds, mammals, even marine creatures. The presenter is Russ Charif, Senior Bioacoustician from the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology.
Topic Three: Rattlesnake! There’s a lot of research on the timber rattlesnake taking place in the Southern Tier of New York, and you should know what is going on!
