Join the Sierra Nevada Red Fox Scat Survey!
Hike trails in Mt. Hood National Forest this summer and help protect one of the most rare mammals in North America!
- Support long term research
- Gain valuable field work experience
- Learn about and help protect our native wildlife
- Receive discounts on Cascadia Wild classes
Due to the tendency of Sierra Nevada red fox to mark on trails, often the biggest challenge of this survey is to go hiking and watch your step! We provide a list of trails to survey in Mt. Hood National Forest, and where and when you hike is up to you. You are encouraged to attend one of two optional trainings to meet other volunteers, hear more about the survey, learn what to look for and how to safely collect scat, and to ask questions. If you can't or would rather not attend, we will set you up with all you need to know.
- Wednesday, May 12, 7:00-8:30 pm, or
- Tuesday, June 8, 7:00-8:30 pm

About CASCADIA WILD
5431 NE 20TH AVE, PORTLAND, OR 97211, US
The mission of Cascadia Wild is to connect people of all ages with the natural world, combining modern ecology with ancient practices of living with the earth. We do this by teaching naturalist skills, creating meaningful interactions with local natural areas, and providing stewardship opportunities for serving the wildlife, forests, and land of the Pacific Northwest.
We believe in balancing scientific study with heartfelt connection, creativity, and holistic awareness, combining the awareness of a native tracker with the knowledge of a modern scientist. Our teaching style uses hands-on experiential learning to engage all the senses. By tapping into a person's own natural curiosity, nature itself becomes the teacher. The goal of this style of learning is to instill a strong connection to the land and a passion for stewardship.
Through our community science Wolverine Tracking Project, our goals are not only to inform research and management but to also offer an opportunity for stewardship. By providing a space where people can learn about and help protect the abundant life with whom we share the forest, we seek to instill a sense of belonging to a place and a recognition of the responsibility that comes with that, to inspire stewardship in the actions of everyday life.
We hope to foster a community of trackers, foragers, naturalists, community scientists, stewards, and people more deeply connected with the natural world - a community that is also a part of the wild life and wild places of Cascadia, our home.
It is our vision that people and communities everywhere will act with care and respect for the natural world, motivated by their understanding of their place in our interconnected ecosystems and their perception of their role in the cycle of life.
This is a Virtual Opportunity with no fixed address.
