Clark's Nutcrackers and Whitebark Pine: Pivotal Players in our Western Mountains Online

When: Fri., Nov. 12, 7-8 p.m. 2021
www.rras.org/home.aspx
Redwood Region Audubon Society welcomes Taza Schaming who will discuss the fascinating relationship between whitebark pine and Clark’s nutcrackers. The trees provide rich, fatty seeds and the birds “plant” the trees’ seeds. A single bird may hide up to 98,000 seeds in a year, helping them get through the winter and any leftovers grow into new trees. These high altitude pines and nutcrackers play critical roles in forest regeneration and ecosystem function. Mountain pine beetles and invasive blister rust threaten the pines. Taza's research in both the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and Washington’s Cascades could help determine management to restore balance.
