We are on the lookout for a badger on the preserves. We’ve had three reports from trusted individuals that one exists. State wildlife officials are doubtful. So we set up a few motion-detect cameras to try to see if it was true. I was excited when I first viewed the creature found in this photo. But then I realized it was an opossum, not a badger.
Still, it’s good to know that the preserves continue to surface still more species. I bet we’re nearing 200 now, just on the BKS tract alone. The preserves are truly serving as quiet refuges for a growing number of species of wildlife. A sanctuary for them.
