Wildlife

Do you like being outside and learning new skills? If so, consider helping monitor local parks and natural areas for native wildlife. Monitoring helps indicate overall watershed health and how regional enhancement efforts are helping wildlife thrive. Opportunities range from one-time volunteer events to seasonal and ongoing programs.
