Learn about wildlife corridors and see if you can catch sight of some critters that may be using your own backyard! Use your own eyes, ears, cameras and/or phones to set up your own wildlife monitoring system. We’ll show you how CSU East Bay Concord Campus has set up their camera trap system in the Diablo foothills and what critters they’re seeing use their campus. It’s amazing how many animals are connected to us through our shared habitats. Let’s see what you find where you are!
Activity will take place over three days. Day one will feature live instruction and activity overview. Day two you’ll be on your own to practice catching critters. Day three we will meet again to see what you found! Join us at our closing event, Friday October 23rd at 3pm.
Activity guide (PDF) will be provided, including useful resources for continuing on your own. Use of cameras and/or phones is recommended but not necessary. Journaling is encouraged.
This event is hosted collaboratively by Save Mt. Diablo and California State University, East Bay.
