05/27/2016 – A team from the Pennsylvania Mammal Atlas participated in the Heritage Conservancy’s Quakertown Swamp BioBlitz from May 19 to 20.  Professionals in various fields such as bugs, birds, amphibians, and plants spent two days finding and recording as many species as possible.   The results of this effort inform the Conservancy of resources on the property and allow for best land management practices.   Over 320 plant and animal species were documented, including five mammal species our team found using a trail camera and snap traps.
