Casco, our second Pine Tree State snowy, was trapped at Portland Jetport by Project SNOWstorm partners at the Biodiversity Research Institute and USDA’s Maine Wildlife Services. Casco was released in a huge complex of blueberry barrens in Washington County, about 150 miles (242 km) northeast of the airport. She looped across Maine, New Brunswick and south to Massachusetts, then started north in the spring, last connecting April 21, 2016 on the north shore of the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
Casco’s transmitter was funded by contributions from the public. Please consider your own financial support via Indiegogo or a direct donation via the Ned Smith Center for Nature and Art, our institutional home.
