22 Apr Save the Date! Building Knowledge of Bainbridge Island Wildlife with CamerasEvents BILT Admin
Community Presentation May 19 6-7 PM Zoom Since 2015, the Bainbridge Island Land Trust has used remote cameras, also known as “camera traps,” to better understand wildlife occurrence and behavior on our Island, and has utilized these insights in management plans for our lands. In 2020, the Land Trust was awarded a grant by the Bainbridge Community Foundation to expand the community’s involvement in this effort and to expand Woodland Park Zoo’s Seattle Urban Carnivore Project onto Bainbridge Island. Over the past year, with guidance from Woodland Park Zoo, Land Trust volunteers have been engaged in camera trap efforts across three properties. In this community presentation, we will discuss how the insights gained from camera trapping can help us to appreciate and maintain our Island’s wildlife, with practical tips for coexisting with carnivores, in particular. We’ll also let you know how you can participate in these camera trapping efforts. UPDATE 5/14: Thank you to everyone who registered for the presentation! Currently, our Zoom capacity has been met and registration is now closed. But, not to fear! The presentation will be recorded and uploaded to the Land Trust’s website. If you have any other questions, please contact Matt Steinwurtzel, our Community Engagement Coordinator.
