Mammal Survey: Cumberland Gap National Historical Park

Cumberland Gap National Historical Park, KY

Copperhead Consulting was hired by the National Park Service in 2005 to conduct a mammal survey within the Cumberland Gap National Historical Park. Surveys within the boundaries of the park were conducted using a variety of equipment and techniques including: mist netting, Tomahawk box-traps, Sherman box-traps, museum specials, and pit-fall traps to capture bats and small mammals. Larger mammals were documented by examining sign (e.g., tracks, scats, burrows, etc.) or random visual encounters. Scented baits, game calls, and spotlights were also employed when necessary.

This project utilized the following services:
Bat Survey, Terrestrial Ecology Surveys
