Bat Population Monitoring at Sagamore Hill National Historic Site White-nose syndrome has decimated bat populations across the Northeast, including populations of the federally threatened northern long-eared bat (Myotis septentrionalis). Interesting, research to date indicates that coastal areas of Long Island, such as Sagamore Hill National Historic Site, may provide a refuge for this rare species. Biologists are using a variety of techniques to monitoring bat populations at Sagamore Hill and seven species have been documented. A biologist removing a bat that has been captured in a mist net.

Numerous outbuildings were required for the operation of the farm on the property. One of the first buildings that Roosevelt had constructed to maintain the farm was the stable and lodge. This project will focus on the archaeological resources related to these buildings and the Firing Range that Roosevelt built on the property during his tenure there.

Resilient Forests Initiative - Managing Deer Impacts A healthy forest needs to have enough tree seedlings and saplings to regenerate the forest canopy after a disturbance. Analysis of NPS I&M and other long-term datasets makes it clear that many eastern national parks lack adequate tree regeneration due to decades of over browsing by white-tailed deer. Deer impacts I&M Networks Support Resilient Forest Management NPS Inventory and Monitoring Networks have been tracking forest health in eastern national parks since 2006. This monitoring information can guide resilient forest management and support parks in adapting to changing conditions through the actions described below. Forest health monitoring Managing Resilient Forests. A Regional Initiative Forests cover tens of thousands of acres in eastern national parks and these critical resources face a range of interacting stressors: over-abundant white-tailed deer populations, invasive plant dominance, novel pests and pathogens, among other threats. The Resilient Forests Initiative will help parks address these issue collectively. Forest health monitoring Series: Managing Resilient Forests Initiative for Eastern National Parks Forests in the northeastern U.S. are in peril. Over-abundant deer, invasive plants, and insect pests are impacting park forests, threatening to degrade the scenic vistas and forested landscapes that parks are renowned for. With regional collaboration, parks can manage these impacts and help forests be resilient. This article series explores tools available to park managers to achieve their goals. Healthy forests have many native seedlings and saplings. Resilient Forests Initiative - Managing Invasive Plants & Pests Park forests are threatened by invasive plants and pests. Strategically tackling invasive plants to protect park’s highest priority natural resources and planning around forest pests and pathogens are important actions in managing resilient forests.
