Citizen Science Volunteer Training: Amphibian Monitoring

Join Skagit Land Trust for amphibian monitoring in 2020. Skagit Land Trust has coordinated with the Whatcom County Amphibian Monitoring Project to establish a baseline of amphibian data on Trust-owned properties. We are looking for volunteers to assist us with egg mass monitoring from March through April. (Past amphibian monitoring volunteers: we encourage you to come refresh your skills!)
In-Classroom Training: 10:00am- 12:45pm
Field visit: 1:30pm- 4:00pm
*We will start promptly at 10:00am- please arrive a few minutes early.*
• completing 2-4 site visits (about every other week) totaling 8-12 hours
• identifying egg masses and noting sightings of tadpoles or adults
• walking through muddy shallow wetlands, uneven terrain, and water
• possibly lifting up to 20 lbs
• filling in data sheets and entering data into an online database

We will car pool from the Co-op to the Trust site for a field visit. Anyone willing to drive please mention this with your RSVP.
**** Please note, while we love dogs, and leashed dogs are welcome to most Skagit Land Trust properties, we ask that you keep them at home for these events. This will ensure the comfort of all guests at our work parties and other events and increase the chance of seeing wildlife.
