This past winter we partnered with the Olympic National Forest for the second year in a row to help with an intensive survey for coastal Pacific Marten, a “critically imperiled” species on the peninsula. ASC recruited and trained two dozen hardy outdoor enthusiasts turned adventure scientists to search for the elusive member of the weasel family. Without the efforts of these volunteers and ASC this survey could not have been completed and the fate of the marten would be an even greater mystery. Find out more on our marten project website.

A big thanks to the National Forest Foundation, Olympic National Forest, Kahtoola, Clif Bar, Osprey Packs and especially all our adventure science volunteers for making this project a huge success! We would also like to thank Danny Schmidt of Colorburn Productions for directing and producing this film for us.
