2018 Central Wasatch: Mammal CameRA Study:

Citizen Scientist Training


Spring of 2018 will mark the beginning of a long-term mammalian camera-trapping study in the Central Wasatch Mountain Range. The Biodiversity and Conservation Ecology Lab at the University of Utah and Wild Utah Project, in collaboration with the Natural History Museum of Utah and Salt Lake City Parks and Public Lands, are developing a new citizen science program where individuals have the opportunity to maintain and monitor motion-sensing camera traps in the Central Wasatch, assist with animal identification photos, and contribute to an online database in an effort to fill critical data gaps in our understanding of native wildlife populations along the Wild-Urban-Interface.
