Offal Wildlife Watching

Remote cameras are increasingly being used for research to observe wildlife behavior, estimate populations, and find rare species. We will talk about the history of camera trapping, different settings, and different techniques used for different research questions. We will also take a short hike around the Elm Creek trails to look at different camera sets and talk about current research taking advantage of this tool including the Offal Wildlife Watching project. We will also have a unique opportunity to watch a gut pile live through a spotting scope.

Part indoor classroom and part outdoor classroom. Dress for the day's weather conditions.

The course cost is $25 and includes course manuals and supplies.
