Event Details

The pika is a small mammal with short limbs, rounded ears, and no tail.  Native to cold climates, pika generally live in sub-alpine rock fields. Uniquely, in the Columbia River Gorge and the Great Salt Lake basin, pika are found at low elevation.  It is unclear why they're able to survive in this atypical habitat.  Due to the cool temperature habitat they normally occupy, it is hypothesized that pika may be particularly vulnerable to climate change.

Working with Dr. Erik Beever of the U.S. Geologic Survey, Steven Clark has been studying American pika in the Columbia River Gorge since 2008 to determine the ecological features of the Gorge that allow and prohibit their survival.  Please join us to learn about the natural history of American pika and their status in Oregon.
