During the next two weeks, Dr. Benjamin Pauli of the Biology Department will be researching how train sounds affect wildlife.

As a part of the research, speakers that play train sounds will be placed along the trails on campus. The research is set to start Monday and will last two weeks. The sound will not play continuously and will follow the same schedule of trains as they travel through Winona.

The sounds should not disturb homes in the area. Signs will be placed along the trails to alert hikers.

Any concerns or questions about the research can be sent to Dr. Pauli at bpauli@smumn.edu.
