Winter Activities Update
Hubachek Wilderness Research Center is operational year-round but quieting as winter arrives. Students from Vermilion Community College in Ely work toward replacing internship hours lost due to COVID cancellations. They are applying their skills to Continuous Forest Inventory plot maintenance, spruce budworm impact assessment, and Firewise balsam fir clearing. Facilities maintenance activity is ongoing as is wildlife data collection via camera traps. Requests for new research projects at the HWRC are being accepted.
