Trails in the Snow: The Effects of Reforestation on Mammal Distribution in the Baraboo Hills

The first snowfalls of winter have transformed the landscape into a pristine, silent, unscathed world. The sounds of birds and animals that are so casual in other seasons are now magnified by silence. The bark of a squirrel is crisp and suspended in time, like the lingering imprint her paws leave on the snow.  Winter is the invigorating cold, the silent struggles for survival, the stories written by paws and hooves on the snow; small details that could easily not be noticed.
