The Winter-Spring 2024 issue of The Twig is "The Science Issue." This expanded issue provides a sneak peek of the results of the 2022 BioBlitz at Beanblossom Bottoms Nature Preserve, in preparation to be published by the Indiana Academy of Science. We also learn about new research partnerships like the Motus Wildlife Tracking System radio telemetry tower we added at the Sam Shine Foundation Preserve, Sycamore's first research-based grant awarded by the Indianapolis Zoological Society, Inc. to study and protect the state endangered Kirtland's snake and threatened cypress firefly, the keystone role crawdads play to create habitat on our preserves, the expansion of herpetological studies along Beanblossom Creek in partnership with the Indiana DNR, and we take a look behind the scenes of our Beanblossom Creek Wildlife Camera Project. This is a fun one!
