"These monitoring programs remind us
Got wildlife? Got citizen volunteers!
Working two by two in the Cascades, wildlife monitors working with the Cascades Citizen Wildlife Monitoring Project document the presence and movement of wildlife, from wolverines to wolves to elk. This Cascades-specific monitoring program is part of Conservation Northwest's larger Citizen Wildlife Monitoring Project.
The job combines wintertime snow tracking with year-long remote camera work to help monitor wildlife throughout out the Snoqualmie Pass corridor, where the highway is being updated to include new wildlife crossing structures.
In coordination with our statewide Citizen Wildlife Monitoring Project, we also monitor in remote habitats from the North Cascades to the Paysaten Wilderness to the Gifford Pinchot National Forest.
