Citizen Wildlife Monitoring Project Update with Laurel Baum
August 26 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pmFree
The Methow Valley Interpretive Center presents the next in their series of Last Sunday Lectures. Presenter Laurel Baum received her B.S. in Environmental Science focusing on Conservation Restoration Ecology from UW. She has been with the Citizen Wildlife Monitoring Project for 7 years—5 of those years as a volunteer and now as the Project Coordinator. Laurel is also an aspiring wildlife tracker & naturalist.
Conservation Northwest leads the Citizen Wildlife Monitoring Project (CWMP), organizing citizen-scientist volunteers to monitor and document wildlife using remote cameras from the Washington Cascades to the Kettle Crest and southern British Columbia.
Confirming the presence of rare carnivores and other animals informs land management decisions upon which wildlife depend and guides conservation programs and priorities of state and federal agencies.
