Critter Cams are back!

Posted by mcpl on

This is a statewide camera trap project in which volunteers run cameras to capture and share pictures of mammals.

The goal of this survey is to:

  • Engage the public in citizen science
  • Increase awareness of surrounding wildlife
  • Collect data on animal abundance and distribution

Camera traps are motion-activated trail cameras. We have cameras available for loan or volunteers can use their own (limited to certain brands)
