We were stuck in 2015. We knew wolves were eating lots of blueberries but we had no idea how to determine how much of their diet was berries. To get accurate diet estimates for wolves (and all predators), you have to know how much prey biomass a single scat represents. For example, we know that 1 wolf scat full of beaver remains represents 0.56 kg of beaver consumed by a wolf. The prey biomass that a scat represents changes depending on the size of the prey. Researchers had already worked all of this out for typical wolf prey (deer, moose, beavers, etc.) but nothing existed for berries. We were perplexed for several months……but then realized the solution was so simple. All we needed to do was wash a turd and count the blueberry seeds in that turd. We could then divide the number of seeds in the turd by the average number of seeds in a typical blueberry. Doing this would tell us how many berries the wolf consumed to make that turd. Then all we would need to do was multiply the number of berries the wolf consumed to make that turd by the typical weight of a blueberry….and voila!…we would have the biomass of berries consumed to produce 1 wolf turd full of berries. And this is what we did! We painstakingly counted the blueberry seeds in 10 wolf turds (the seeds are tiny!) and figured out that a wolf turd full of blueberry seeds means that a wolf ate 0.47 kg of blueberries. On average, a wolf turd has 20,415 seeds in it…YIKES! With this super cool info, we were then able to understand that blueberries make up to 80% of the weekly diets of wolf packs in July and August during peak berry season!

Thanksgiving week brought a lot of snow to much of the country. This all gets one thinking about how to enjoy the winter months in the cold weather side of national parks like Yellowstone #swipeleft , Glacier, and Banff national parks, to name just a few in the U.S. (and our neighbor to the North of us). If you’re looking to enjoy parks chilled and blanketed by winter, you’ll want to read the Feature Story in today’s edition of the #nationalparkstraveler . You might also be interested in the other articles in the Traveler, including one about National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day at Charlestown Navy Yard, and another about a lawsuits filed to overturn the Interior Department’s move to expand e-bike access in the National Park System.

Bryce Canyon National Park is located in Utah, USA and is one of the most unique landscapes in the entire world! 🌎 The wind-eroded, sculpture-like columns that characterize the park are called hoodoos. National Park Express can take you right up to the canyon rim, where you can either enjoy the bird’s-eye views from up top or hike down further (we recommend the Queen’s Garden/Navajo Loop trail!) to get up close. 🥾 Have you been? #NationalParkExpress

A look at Twenty Mule Team Canyon in Death Valley National Park in the fading light. Late afternoon is always a good time to see the canyon, as low light creates beautiful shadows along the badlands, but the low late November sun angle really seemed to accentuate them even more. Did you know: scenes from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi were filmed here? A portion of the canyon was the landscape around Jabba the Hut’s palace.

A moment of respite in Shenandoah National Park during our monster 11-mile hike up 2,450 feet along a series of waterfalls. The way down was the hardest and our calf muscles were screaming for days after. We barely made it out before night fell. Still savoring memories of the pristine air, the tumbling water and the incredible monolithic rock formations.⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ 📷 @georgebillard#nature #naturalist #forager #wildsoul #hiker #treehugger #fieldguide #wildlife #nationalpark #actnatural #getoutside #theoutsideinstitute

Each craft fair seems to offer a different booth dimension to vendors. I'm constantly adjusting my display during those early morning setups based on which tables I can bring and how I need to arrange them. But with back-to-back events this weekend, I decided to practice my 6' table display so I can just look at the photo and get it up quickly without much thought (my alarm will be going off at 5am...). • If you stop by stART at the Station on Sunday (9-5 at Union Station, Worcester) this is what you'll see at my booth. Well, minus the spooky basement and plus a tablecloth. My whole National Park collection will be available. Mix & match parks to create personalized gifts - but if you're having trouble deciding, you can always go with my letterpress poster, which contains all 61 parks. • This is always one of my favorite fairs. 100+ great artists crammed into a beautiful old station. If you live in Central MA, consider this your 1-stop shop for all of your remaining holiday gift needs. And you have my permission to buy something for yourself, too. • #startatthestation #unionstation #worcester #worcesterma #thewoo #centralmass #ninedayweekend #nationalpark #nationalparks #holidayshopping #stockingstuffers #acadia #yellowstone #everglades #grandteton #grandcanyon #greatsmokymountains #zion #arches #yosemite #mountrainier #joshuatree #deathvalley #redwood #brycecanyon #sequoia #denali #hawaiivolcanoes #rockymountain #badlands

Do you know in the wild, giraffes rarely lie down because of vulnerability to predators?
