Curious about the elusive Mazama Pocket Gopher, want to learn more about monitoring and research, or just want to spend some time on our beautiful prairies? CNLM is offering a training for volunteers interested in helping with our Mazama Pocket Gopher monitoring work. At the training, volunteers will learn about the species, how to ID their mounds, and how to quantify their abundance on the prairie. Ideally, volunteers will later help at least two times per month with monitoring work, including collecting data using a hand held Trimble or paper data sheets, working with CNLM staff biologists, and getting to explore the prairies looking for endangered species.
