The TWS Camera Project demonstrates ecological research and application through the use of remote triggered wildlife camera traps in Fort Collins Natural Areas.
Our goals are two fold:
1. Further interest of K‐12 students in local habitats, wildlife, and ecosystem connections.
2. Provide undergraduate students at Colorado State University with hands‐on wildlife research experience.
•Educational Outreach at Pineridge Natural Area. We are currently working with 5th grade students at Boltz Middle School and are very interested expanding the reach of our project to additional schools along the Northern Front Range!
•Black-Footed Ferret Monitoring at Soapstone Natural Area. We are gathering data for research purposes and to assist Fort Collins Natural Areas and the US Fish and Wildlife Service in the recovery of this iconic endangered species.
