The Sierra Nevada Red Fox Scat Survey provides invaluable genetic data that tell us about the diversity, ancestry, population, habitat connectivity, and more about the Sierra Nevada red fox.
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
Strap on your hiking boots and join the team!
