Presentation: Fisher & Marten in NY State

Join us in the Bierhall Café for a SAAS Wildlife Presentation! Coffee and breakfast items will be available for purchase prior to the event.

Program Description: Fisher and American (pine) marten are two of the most fascinating and least known mammals in New York State. One is well known for its ability to take down the prickly porcupine, while the other forages in the tiniest of spaces deep under the snow. Both members of the weasel family, they have undergone major range expansions in most of their respective parts of the state in recent decades. Biologists with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) have conducted research on these unique mammals over the past 15+ years to help answer some of the fundamental questions previously unknown. Join DEC biologist Tim Watson as he discusses the biology, ecology, former research findings, and current research for both fisher and marten in New York State.
