Habitat Network is a citizen science project designed to cultivate a richer understanding of wildlife habitat for both professional scientists and people concerned with their local environments. Data is being collected by volunteers who draw maps of their backyards, parks, farms, favorite birding locations, schools, and gardens. The Nature Conservancy in Washington has a goal of using this resource to map all of our preserves, all of our City Habitat partner projects, and as many yards, schools, and neighborhood parks as possible in 2018.
To achieve this goal we are recruiting a team of volunteers to take personal responsibility for mapping their nearby preserve and local urban conservation projects. Volunteers will be supported with an in-person training the second week of January. Trainings will be hosted in Seattle, Mount Vernon, Cle Elum, Wenatchee, and on the Olympic peninsula (exact location will be determined based on sign ups.)
If you live near or steward one of our preserves, or live in Seattle or Tacoma, this is a great project you can take on that is flexible with your schedule and will inform conservation and urban planning decision in years to come.
