Intern Night Tonight – May 4, 2016

Posted on May 3, 2016

Please join us at RTPI on Wednesday May 4 from 6-7pm for a night of fun and learning as we enjoy presentations from two of RTPI’s fantastic interns. Alex Shipherd and Bryce Alexander, both Jamestown Community College students, have spent much of the spring semester assisting in winter raptor and hemlock woolly adelgid studies, respectively.

Throughout the winter field season, Alex monitored known locations of roosting Northern Harriers and Short-eared owls within Chautauqua and Cattaraugus Counties while using GIS to find other probable locations in which they may occur.


Bryce assisted in conducting early detection surveys throughout Chautauqua, Cattaraugus and Warren Counties in search of spreading hemlock woolly adelgid and participated in educational outreach through RTPI’s collaborative forest pest outreach program.
