421 Mono dunes critter caper
Spend the morning checking live-traps and track plots to discover Mono's desert mammal fauna. We will be trapping in the dunes on the northeast side of the lake, an environment that also supports Utah juniper woodlands. We should see many of the small mammals that characterize the Great Basin, including the dark kangaroo mouse, Ord's and Panamint kangaroo rats, Great Basin pocket mouse, pinyon mouse, and sagebrush chipmunk. During this ever-popular trip, we'll also keep our eyes and ears open for some of the Eastside bird specialties of the area including Sage Sparrow, Sage Thrasher, Juniper Titmouse, and Gray Flycatcher. Open to kids of all ages. (est. driving miles: 40; hiking difficulty: easy)
