Citizen Science Volunteer Monitoring Program
Mammal Wildlife Tracking
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.
For more information, contact Paula Coughlin, Coordinator at email@example.com.
Vernal Pool Inventory Surveys

Field work: Fri/Sat mornings, Apr & May
Usually dry by summer, snowmelt and spring rains fill vernal pools in early spring. The call of peepers and wood frogs follow. On Friday and Saturday mornings in April and May, our trained volunteers are out counting egg masses and looking for frogs and salamanders at vernal pools in northeast CT. If you have a vernal pool near you, please let us know. Register for one of the training sessions, contact Paula Coughlin, Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
