Citizen Wildlife Monitoring Project Update with Laurel Baum

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.

Come learn more about this citizen science project and how you can get involved!

The Last Sunday Lecture Series is presented free of charge but donations are graciously accepted!

The Ecology of the Methow – 8 Week Course

Ecology is the study of interrelationships in the natural world, between living things and with the Good Earth. It is a profound and awe-inspiring subject, although much of the interrelatedness is hidden from the eyes. A basic example is the oxygen in atmosphere; oxygen is a very reactive element and comprises 21% of the air only because photosynthesizers (plants, algae, cyanobacteria) constantly pump it into the atmosphere; without plants there would be no oxygen. In this course we will look into the ecology of the soil, of our rivers, ponds, forests, the shrub-steep, the alpine zone, and human ecology. Most evenings will include a lab session when we work with hands-on, earthy material. It will be a stimulating way to utilize long winter nights.

This class is held in the Education Station, Building #9.

Cost for the 8 week course is on a sliding scale – $0-$100.
