Heather Garland and Cory Holliday are going on a hunt deep under ground, looking to see what they can find in a cave in Jackson County. Garland and Holliday work for the Nature Conservancy. A couple of weeks ago, Garland put out several pit fall traps. Now, they have come back to see what the traps might have snared .
Most of the time, they know what they are going to find. “You expect to find certain things like millipedes, crickets, beetles and other things. You just don't know what species,” said Garland. What excites them, is finding something they had no......idea is here. “This is a sudo scorpion; a new species,” she said.
