MOOSE BROWSE & INVASIVE SPECIES

Date/Time

Apr 14, 2013
02:00 PM until 03:00 PM

Description

 

What happens when an ornamental tree that contains cyanide invades the same habitats that moose forage in?  You can help scientists find out. Come learn about monitoring moose winter foraging ecology, winter tree identification, and invasive species ecology. Invasive Plants Instructor Gino Graziano, UAF Cooperative Extension Service, is working with Anchorage School District students to collect data on how moose foraging behavior is affected by the May Day chokecherry (Prunus padus), a common, but invasive, ornamental tree. This is your opportunity to participate in an ecological study concerning an invasive tree and moose, an icon of Alaska.  Free program (indoors, followed by walk so dress for the weather); $5 parking for non-members.
