Classes & FieldworkNorthwest Trek is expanding learning opportunities for citizens to take on the role of scientists with classes in NatureMapping and field work to support local conservation initiatives.
NatureMapping: Data Collection and Monitoring
NatureMapping provides an opportunity for citizen scientists to observe, monitor and inventory their local habitats and use the information gathered to effect real change. Data collected can be used by scientists on state and local levels to help make decisions that determine a healthy future for fish and wildlife.NatureMapping Field Trips are free for participants. You do not need NatureMapping experience for this activity. Participants should come dressed for the weather and for walking in a wet environment on uneven surfaces. All field trips are 9 am to noon. Please contact Rachael Mueller at Rachael.Mueller@nwtrek.org for more information or to sign up for a field trip.
