Last month, we had the opportunity to share our program with Timnath Elementary School at their STEM Festival. Students and their families checked out various wildlife specimens, got photo-captured by a camera trap as they passed through an obstacle course, and made plaster casts of their very own “tracks” to take home. A big thank you to Timnath for inviting us to share our program and to all of The Wildlife Society members that volunteered to spend their Saturday sharing their passion for wildlife!
This past weekend we finished up our camera trap season at Pineridge Natural Area. The cameras were up for the entire month of October. Here are some of the best photos we captured this fall! We captured a lot of bobcat and deer photos as well as one black bear photo! Enjoy!
This past weekend a bunch of CSU volunteers went out with students from Boltz Middle School to set up our remote sensing cameras. It was the perfect autumn day to be walking around outside. Everyone had a great time learning how to use and set-up the cameras. We also created a scavenger hunt for the kids to complete as well as some fun games to keep them entertained. Overall, the weekend was a success! We will be going out this Saturday to do our first camera check. Hopefully the weather will give us another lovely day. Stay tuned for more updates from the TWS Camera Project! And make sure you go out and enjoy this wonderful weather while it lasts.
Now that the semester is in full swing, it is time to get the ball rolling with the camera project! This Friday, September 30th, we will be going to Boltz Middle School to introduce the camera project to the 6th grade class. They will be helping us check cameras every week for the month of October. They will use the data we collect to create their own ecology projects! We will be going out every weekend in October to check cameras, gather data, and enjoy the beautiful outdoors. Stay tuned for more updates!
Welcome back to CSU!
I hope you all had a lovely summer. Now that classes are back in session it is time to get involved with The Wildlife Society! We will be having our first meeting next Tuesday, September 6th, at 5 pm at the Lagoon behind the Lory Student Center. We will discuss new member information and explain more about what we do as a club. If you are also interested, before our meeting there will be a talk on rhino Conservation by Joel Berger in the LSC, room 290 Grey Rock at 4 pm. We hope to see you there!
Below are the best photos of 2015 captured at Pineridge Natural Area, south of Hughes Stadium. We have captured a variety of animals from a skunk to a mountain lion! Enjoy the photos and keep a look our for more updates for the Camera Project!
We are super excited to have gotten our fourth ferret photo up at Soapstone this past week! Nice to see that nearly a year after their introduction to Soapstone Natural Area these little guys are alive and well.
The TWS Camera Project went out to Pineridge Natural Area this past weekend to set up cameras for our Fall 2015 season of data collection. Thanks to everyone who came out!
