In collaboration with Julie Meachen (Des Moines University), we have received funding to conduct two more seasons of field work at Natural Trap Cave. We plan to perform additional excavations, particularly to fill out our microvertebrate data. We will also do a survey of the microvertebrates living in the vicinity of the cave, both in the semi-arid sagebrush directly around the cave and in the forests currently at elevations just below. Shoot me an email if you are interested in volunteering this summer. It’s going to be an exciting adventure!
