Document Description
Artificial nest boxes will be installed for wildlife, including northern flying squirrels (Glaucomys sabrinus). The nest boxes will be usedto monitor wildlife presence and restore cavity habitat. Natural nest cavities found in large living and dead trees have been lost to forest fires and other causes. Northern flying squirrels occupied mature forest in Miller Canyon in the past and were found in Black Oak Day Use Area. The nest boxes will be installed in dense forest (2 per acre), as far as possible from Hwy 138 and other roads. To avoid wildlife near trails, the nest boxes will be installed out of sight of trails.
