Our Community Wildlife Monitoring Program is currently seeking volunteers for our upcoming winter field season.
Conservation Northwest / Nov 18, 2022 / Wildlife Monitoring
2023 Winter Season
Jan-March | 3-4 days of field surveys
Winter Training (Mandatory) | Dec. 11th
Conservation Northwest runs one of the largest volunteer-led wildlife monitoring programs in the nation. We are seeking dedicated individuals to carry out snow-tracking surveys for wildlife along interstate 90 near Snoqualmie Pass in the Washington Cascades.
Volunteers will be expected to commit to 3-4 days of field surveys between early January and the middle of March. Training in our field methods will be provided during a mandatory training on Sunday, December 11, 2022. Field days for this project are often long and require appropriate skill and equipment to travel on snowshoes in winter mountain conditions.
New this year, we are planning to organize several teams as affinity groups to accommodate individuals that might feel more comfortable in social space with peers. If you would like to be included in an LGBTQ+ affinity team, Spanish-speaking affinity team, or BIPOC affinity team please let us know when you respond with your interest in participating in the program this year.
If you are interested in volunteering for our 2023 winter season, please email Tanner Humphries (CWMP program lead) at firstname.lastname@example.org. Space is limited so let us know ASAP!
