Our April 14th Community Forum was a hit! This year’s forum focused on how scientists are using camera trapping technology to better understand our natural world and how local residents can use technology to discover wildlife in their own backyards. The audience was captivated by the stunning images and videos of the creatures that live among us, while learning about important conservation issues, like connectivity. Attendees left excited and empowered to get out in nature and join in on citizen science.
