2018 Central Wasatch: Mammal Camera Trapping Study:

Citizen Scientist Training


Spring of 2018 will mark the beginning of pilot season for 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, 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. 

For information see the citizen scientist resources page coming soon..
