    Students study snake population at the Francis E. Walter Dam

    A group of graduate students from East Stroudsburg University partnered with the staff at the Francis E. Walter Dam in White Haven, PA as part of thesis work on rattlesnakes. The biological research involves measuring, tagging, determining the sex of the snakes and whether the females are gravid. Information gathered at dam will be used in a larger study that will help conservation efforts on the timber rattlesnake throughout the state of Pennsylvania.
