PIKA COUNTING AT CEDAR BREAKS
Join us in the high country of Cedar Breaks to search for one of Utah’s rarer mammals, the American pika. We’ll talk about the pika’s haying behavior, their unique features including their social grid layout and why they are so vulnerable to heat. While having fun, we’ll be helping the park service keep track of this rapidly disappearing mammal.
