Staff at the Archbold Biological Station in Highlands County are mourning the deaths of two of their major contributors. Dave Maehr, a visiting scientist, and his pilot, Mason Smoak, a local citrus grower – were killed in a plane crash last Friday while tracking radio collared black bears. Director Hillary Swain told WGCU’s Valerie Alker it’s a great loss.
