Here’s one!

On November 3, this was posted to the Iron County Land & Water Conservation Department’s Facebook page:

“Yah…. We finally got ourselves a marten on camera. Stay tuned for updates on the capture processes. We’ll be setting and checking our live traps this week.”

Marten!

Wildlife in our forest

Last August we enjoyed a presentation by Zach Wilson, of the Iron County Land & Water Conservation Department, about his research on the American martens that live in the woods to the west of the lake.  Recently he published these photos on Facebook that show a lot of activity around the bait he and his volunteers are monitoring. No martens yet, but – wow!

If anyone is lucky enough to spot an American marten in the neighborhood, Zach wants to know. Contact him at zach@ironcountywi.org.
