Andie Graham, a second year wildlife technology student, has recently initiated a research project involving porcupine damage on a local Rails-to-Trails trail.  Over the years, porcupines have caused large amounts of damage by chewing on the wooden bridges and signs along the trail.  By testing different wood types and repellents, Andie intends to find a way to deter porcupines from further damaging the trail’s wooden structures.  Wildlife technology faculty member Keely Roen is serving as project supervisor and Dr. Andrew Bartholomay, Assistant Professor of Forestry, is providing additional support.
