Jon Grinnell explains rabbit survival strategy

Last week, a group of Environmental Studies students strapped on their snowshoes and followed Jon Grinnell (Biology), Joel Carlin (Biology) and Laura Triplett (Geology) into the woods down by the river.   We saw deer beds, cottontail rabbit browse, shrew holes and a multitude of squirrel tracks.  It was nice to get outside and learn a bit about how animals survive Minnesota’s winter without Goretex.
