Big Horn Middle School's 7th grade science classes are working on a Geo-inquiry question this year related to the topic of deer and car crashes on Hwy 335 between Big Horn and Sheridan. They would like to request help from the community as they collect data for this project.  Anyone who is interested in adding to our data set, can click on the following Google Forms link and answer a few questions about your experiences with deer collisions or near collisions in our community!  You are welcome to complete a separate response for each incident that you might have had.  The response is anonymous but will help us pinpoint high impact areas of the road where extra signage or other preventative measures may be necessary.  The survey will be open until Tuesday, Nov 20.
