Citizen Science Volunteer Monitoring Program
You may have seen the tracks of a red fox or a fisher in mud or snow. Maybe, you’re lucky and caught a glimpse of a coyote. Connecticut’s forests provide excellent habitat for local wildlife. Our experienced Citizen Science Volunteers monitor sites in Woodstock, Willington, and Canterbury seasonally, always on the lookout for track and sign of fisher, river otter, mink, moose, black bear, and bobcat.
You are welcome to begin or continue training to become a Citizen Science wildlife monitor by attending training hikes that suit your schedule throughout the year. Please wear weather and hike-appropriate clothing.
