Kangaroo rat trappings completed to aid in monitoring, research

The San Bernardino Valley Water Conservation District has been working with the U.S. Geological Survey to analyze data collected during San Bernardino kangaroo rat monitoring completed since last fall. The work will help to shape future monitoring to optimize success. It included trappings from late-July to mid-August of this year, and soil sampling. The research will help to identify where and why the kangaroo rat is setting up habitat in certain areas, and could help in regional monitoring of the species.
