Become a Wildlife Watcher Volunteer!
Join us in the forests of NE Oregon to monitor rare and rarely seen wildlife. HCPC is launching a volunteer driven wildlife monitoring project by combining year-long remote camera work with other wildlife tracking methods.
When: Checking the wildlife camera sites can be done at your convenience after you are trained.
Where: Blue Mountains, around Anthony Lakes, area to be disclosed upon registration.
Why: Our chief goal of this project is confirming the presence of rare wildlife, such as the American marten (aka “pine marten”). Marten are small forest carnivores and members of the weasel family. While we hope to capture all varieties of wildlife, we are currently focusing on marten because as a “Management Indicator Species” for our region they represent species associated with old growth and mature forest habitats. Confirming the presence of species like marten can inform land management decisions that affect the lands our wildlife depend upon and help prevent further habitat fragmentation. We have been collaborating with state and federal agency wildlife experts on how to make our monitoring efforts successful and hope you will come join us for a fun day in the forest!
