Getting Volunteers Involved with Wildlife Conservation

With today’s apps and websites, anyone can become a naturalist. This presentation will introduce some of the latest electronic resources that will actually bring you closer to nature in order to document the living organisms on your land. Identifying the species on your property is the first step in creating a haven for wildlife. Thousands of species can exist on a protected parcel of land, each with its own story, and a property that is teeming with wildlife will be a benefit to human health. But how do we keep that wildlife from disappearing? First, you need to know that it’s there. This presentation will demonstrate some easy steps to take to give you the know-how to assess the natural resources on your land and to understand the needs of the most vulnerable species.
