Our wildlife monitoring volunteers are outside year-round monitoring wildlife movement and presence in Washington's Cascades and Columbia Highlands and across the border into British Columbia. 

Here you'll find information about projects underway and volunteer resources for the field, including training documents and contact information for project staff.

  • For project questions or to volunteer, please contact coordinator Laurel Baum at lbaum (at)
  • For snow tracking, contact David Moskowitz at davem (at)

Remote camera volunteers: The information above for our remote camera season still applies in winter with additional considerations for weather.

Wolverine snow trackers: As the snow falls each year, we hope to tap into the help of winter backcountry enthusiasts to record wolverine tracks in snow.

Recorded tracks and signs of wolverine are analyzed by qualified personnel to guide decisions about future efforts to document wolverines in the region through remote cameras, DNA sample collection, and further wolverine tracking efforts.

To complement in-person volunteer tracking trainings provided each winter by Dave Moskowitz of the Wilderness Awareness School, here's a document with the tools needed for novices to recognize and collect potential wolverine tracks while pursuing winter outdoor activities in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest.

For questions, or to submit signed, completed field documents: please contact us at alison (a) 

I-90 Snoqualmie Pass snow trackers: Training and leadership is provided annually by the Wilderness Awareness School, and each fall we begin recruiting for the next season.
