A group with ties to College of Western Idaho (CWI) spent the summer at Lake Cascade, conducting research in conjunction with a pair of undergraduate programs. Recent CWI graduate, Tyrell Styhl, was 1-of-10 students nation-wide participating in the Boise State University Research Experiences for Undergraduates in Raptor Research. He was joined by another 2015 graduate, Annie Baxter, and current CWI student, Zach Sanchez, who were conducting research through the Idaho EPSCoR MILES Undergraduate Research and Internships program. CWI Biology Faculty Dusty Perkins served as research mentor for these students and directs this multi-year project that focuses on evaluating ecological and human-caused factors that affect osprey breeding success.
